This my varient of what is a pretty classic French cooking, it's my wife's favorit so I often cook if for her birthday or for christmas. You can find foie gras on the interweb (as they call it in Cornwall) licklips.gif.


Duck breasts with foie gras sauce and red fruits (for 2)

·         2 duck breasts

·         1 slice of foie gras

·         200g of berries (blueberries, raspberries or walls)

·         200g red grapes

·         100ml red wine

·         100ml water

·         Salt

·         Pepper

Wash fruits and place in a sauce pan with the red wine, foie gras, water, salt and pepper, leave to reduce, the sauce needs to be slightly sticky. Strain the sauce through a sieve.

Put the breasts in a frying pan over a high heat to brown and starting with the fatty side for 3min each side. Then place on the fat side, reduce to medium heat and cook 5-7 minutes depending on size. Season at the end of cooking and let stand in a dish 10 minutes before cutting.

Cut the breasts into 5mm slices and serve with the sauce.

Very good with simple baked potatoes,  cut into 2 and topped with sauce presentation  on a plate.

Also excellent with fresh gnocchi.
