Advice for serving foie gras on its own

For the perfect foie gras experience, the best time to serve it is at the start of the meal, when your tastebuds are the most open to flavors. Canard Soulard offers several foie gras packaging options, for a terrific tasting experience.

At what temperature should you eat foie gras?

To experience the full flavor of your foie gras, we recommend taking it out of the refrigerator 15 to 30 minutes before serving. If you bring it out when it is too cold, you won't be able to enjoy all of the tastes. Never put foie gras in the freezer. If you do, it will lose its texture, and its flavors will be diminished.

How to slice foie gras

Before slicing your foie gras, if it is too hard to remove, place the pot in hot water for a few seconds.

There are a number of techniques for obtaining perfect slices of foie gras. For a great experience, your slices shouldn't be too thick (about 1 cm).

You should slice them a few minutes before serving, with either a fine, non-serrated knife or a slicer. This will give you thin, perfect slices. Don't hesitate to pass the blade under warm water between each slice.

With what should I serve my foie gras?

Foie gras combines very well with farmhouse bread, sandwich bread, brioche and canapé crackers. You can toast them for more flavor. If you like sweet and savory combinations, we recommend serving it with a bread containing fruit and/or nuts. But don't try to spread the foie gras: place it gently on the bread.

Fruit makes for an excellent accompaniment to foie gras, whether in a jam or compote. You can serve it with figs, pears, grapes or dates.

In terms of beverages, foie gras goes very well with sweet wines like Sauternes, Jurançon, Monbazillac and so on. You can also enjoy it with champagne.
