Ingredients (4 people)

Spice Mixture

  • 1/2 ounce Sarawak black pepper (15 g)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons long pepper (5 g)

Candied Rind

  • 1 fresh lemon
  • 1 orange
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 3/4 ounces of confectioner’s sugar (50 g)

Peppered Citrus Marmalade

  • 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar (2 cl)


Step 1: Foie Gras

Trim the foie gras lobes, and remove the gall, the nerves, and the bloody parts. Remove the thinner parts at each end, evening out the two lobes and making them round.

Season the foie gras with salt, then place into a cold, cast iron pan. Slide into a 390°F (200°C) oven, and brown on all sides. Finish cooking in a Pyrex cocotte.

Wrap the foie gras in the lemon leaves with the reserved rinds from the marmalade, prepared below, and cover the leaves with duck fat. Close the cocotte, and cook in a very hot oven at 430°F (220°C) for 7 minutes.

Once cooked, season the liver with the spice mixture, prepared below.
