Godard-Chambon & Marrel Bloc of Duck Foie Gras

Luxuriously Intense

This beau¬≠ti¬≠ful paste block of intense duck foie gras will trans¬≠form any inti¬≠mate evening at home into a night of decadence.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Sourc¬≠ing their duck foie gras from the viti¬≠cul¬≠tur¬≠al¬≠ly renowned South-West of France, Godard-Cham¬≠bon & Mar¬≠rel makes a strong case for this liv¬≠er-based treat. Their pre¬≠served duck foie gras blocks gain their pro¬≠longed shelf-life from a care¬≠ful bal¬≠ance of salt and spices. Duck foie gras tends to be less fat¬≠ty than its goose coun¬≠ter¬≠part, but it pos¬≠sess¬≠es an intense fla¬≠vor and that same but¬≠tery mouth¬≠feel. The infu¬≠sion of port wine in this ver¬≠sion by Godard-Cham¬≠bon & Mar¬≠rel adds to that inten¬≠si¬≠ty and imparts a faint sweet¬≠ness to its fla¬≠vor profile.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Foie gras can be had as an appe¬≠tiz¬≠er or as part of your main course. To expe¬≠ri¬≠ence its taste ful¬≠ly, it is impor¬≠tant not to over¬≠whelm it with oth¬≠er pun¬≠gent fla¬≠vors or aro¬≠mas. Thin slices of foie gras on crusty bread go well with fruit chut¬≠ney, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly fig, pear, or grapes‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČan ode to its region¬≠al ori¬≠gin. A side of crisp sliced fruit like apples or pears steeped in wine pro¬≠vide won¬≠der¬≠ful com¬≠ple¬≠men¬≠tary fla¬≠vors. If you pre¬≠fer some¬≠thing a lit¬≠tle more savory, reach for some a lit¬≠tle bal¬≠sam¬≠ic vine¬≠gar or a dol¬≠lop of French mus¬≠tard. We love the dif¬≠fer¬≠ent fla¬≠vors from our Pom¬≠mery Mus¬≠tard Col¬≠lec¬≠tion for just this purpose!

Foie gras goes with many dif¬≠fer¬≠ent wines. The clas¬≠sic wine pair¬≠ing is, of course, a sweet French Sauterne, but this par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar foie gras goes well with white wine from the region it comes from, such as a C√ītes de Gascogne, Berg¬≠er¬≠ac, Gail¬≠lac, or Juran√ßon. For red wines, go for an aged Bor¬≠deaux like a Pomerol or St. Emil¬≠lion. Duck foie gras requires brut cham¬≠pagnes to match up to its strong fla¬≠vors. And if you‚Äôd rather skip the wine list entire¬≠ly, try a pear or apple cider for just the right touch of acidity.

THE PROMISE OF GAS­TRO­NOM­I­CAL EXCELLENCE

Mai¬≠son Godard was found¬≠ed in 1878 by Alain and Mich√®le Godard, then joined by their chil¬≠dren Pas¬≠cal and Annabel. In 1911, they part¬≠nered with Mai¬≠son Cham¬≠bon & Mar¬≠rel, one of the old¬≠est truf¬≠fle mer¬≠chants in France. They offi¬≠cial¬≠ly became Godard-Cham¬≠bon & Mar¬≠rel in 1992, pur¬≠su¬≠ing a joint epi¬≠cure¬≠an pas¬≠sion: respect¬≠ing tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al qual¬≠i¬≠ty and authen¬≠tic¬≠i¬≠ty, and bring¬≠ing a new lev¬≠el of gas¬≠tro¬≠nom¬≠i¬≠cal excel¬≠lence to the world.
