MARINATED FOIE GRAS

MARINATED FOIE GRAS


Makes about 1 kg
2 lobes foie gras, about 800 g each
15 g salt
2 g pink curing salt #1
2 g sugar
2 g white pepper
9 g Madeira
5 g brandy
Keep the foie gras in the original packaging and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes

to temper. Remove the foie from the packaging. Working with one lobe at a time, carefully
push away the foie from the veins and lift the veins out of the foie. Repeat with the second
lobe. Pass the deveined foie gras through a coarse-mesh tamis. Separate 1 kg of foie and
place in a large mixing bowl. Reserve the rest for another use. Combine the salts, sugar,
and white pepper in a spice grinder and grind to a fine powder. Season the foie with the
powdered mix. Add the Madeira and brandy and mix until fully incorporated. Seal the
seasoned foie gras airtight in a sous vide bag. Refrigerate overnight to marinate. Remove
the marinated foie from the bag and transfer to the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk
attachment. Whip the foie on medium speed until smooth and emulsified, about 5 minutes.
Immediately seal the foie airtight in a sous vide bag and reserve, refrigerated, for up to 1
week
