Foie Gras
  • 600g fresh foie gras
  • 2 glasses of champagne
  • 5g salt
  • 3g pepper
Saffron Pineapple Chutney
  • 100g pineapple flesh
  • 100g gelling sugar
  • Juice of 1/4 lime
  • 1 saffron capsule


Step 1. Foie Gras

  1. Carefully open the foie gras and denervate it with the tip of a knife.
  2. Add salt, pepper and drizzle over the champagne.
  3. Cover and chill overnight in the fridge. The next day, preheat the oven at 110°C.
  4. Cut the foie gras into pieces and place them in a terrine dish. Pack down with your hand.
  5. Pour some simmering water into a large oven dish to make a bain-marie. Put the terrine into the oven dish, close the lid and then put in the oven for approximately 1h.
  6. Leave to cool then put in the fridge for at least 24h before serving with a spoonful of saffron pineapple chutney.

Step 2. Saffron Pineapple Chutney

  1. Put the pineapple chopped into 3-cm pieces, the lime juice and the sugar into a saucepan, mix and bring to the boil for 30 min.
  2. Add the saffron and leave to infuse while the chutney cools down.
  3. Check if it is cooked by pouring a few drops onto a cold plate and then tipping the plate: the pineapple chutney should run slowly.
