Preparation time: 25 min
- Foie gras creamIn a hot pan, sear the seasoned foie gras on both side.Add them to the blender with the cooking liquids, the cream and mix well.Pass the mixture through a fine mesh sleeve into a sauce pan. Add the sugar,egg yokes and mix thoroughly but not too much. (Make sure it doesn't foam up.)Heat the milk and pour on top of the mixture while whisking constantly ensuring the eggs don't curdle. Let the mixture cool in the fridge for a few hours before transferring in your cooking vessels and bake for 45 minutes. (cooking time will vary based on the size of the dishes.)
- Caramelized apple brunoisePeel and core the apples. Make sliced approximately 3 or 4 mm thick. Lay them on the side and cut them in little matchsticks and then little cubes.In a hot pan, add the butter and sugar until it caramelizes. Add the apple cubes and mix thoroughly. Let the mixture cook for 10-15 seconds and remove to keep the apples crunchy.Keep this mixture at room temperature.
- Port caramelAdd the sugar to a pan with the heat set to medium. Keep a constant eye on the mixture as the sugar can burn quickly. Once the sugar turns into a nice blond caramel color, add the port and mix to cool the mixture down. Let it cook and reduce until it reaches a syrupy consistency.
