Buttery French Style Foie Gras Terrine
A high quality, delicious, French-style terrine de foie gras, made of whole pieces of Hudson Valley duck foie gras, seasoning and Sauternes wine. This rich and creamy terrine is fully cooked and ready-to-serve.
Simply slice and serve with bread, crackers, toast points, or top a steak, baked potato, or poultry with a slice.
1.3 pound size is large enough to serve 20 people as an appetizer course or up to 50 at a cocktail party. Simply slice and serve on fancy crackers, fresh French baguette, or toasted brioche bread. Makes a delicious first course when served with mixed greens and aged balsamic vinegar such as Acetaia Dodi Famiglia Dodi.
To remove the terrine from the plastic mold, carefully run a knife around the edge, then slam the terrine on the counter to pop the terrine out of the mold. This may seem a bit crude...but it works like a charm! There is a layer of rendered foie gras fat which forms during the cooking process. The fat can either be consumed with the foie gras, or can be removed and saved for sautéing potatoes, vegetables, or meats.
Unopened, the foie gras terrine lasts at least 30 days. Once opened, consume within 7 days for best flavor, or seal with a vacuum seal device to reduce oxidation and prolong refrigerated shelf life beyond 7 days.
