Mmmmm. Looks great. I always think fois gras is best as a starter as too much of it usually makes me feel a bit sickly.

Have to say loving the combination her though.

Andy -


i'd have to agree, andy - this was definitely a starter size, we had a plate of cheeses and some salad after... the richness of the foie gras means that sometimes i can't manage more than a few bites, but in this case, the acidity of the compote cut so nicely through it that i finished it all.
please try it, it's a keeper!


Mmm dining on foie gras is bound to make things pick up, even if they weren't before!
There's something very Marie Antoinette about it in the best possible way! Qu'ils mangent brioches!
Hope decadence returns to banish credit crunch blues very soon.


Well done! Never stop celebrating life, at least here and then...

Lots of love from Vienna, angelika

Looks great; indulgence is always a great pick-me-up!
