Peach Marmalade

  • 2 peaches
  • 1 basil leaf
  • 2 black peppercorns

  • fleur de sel

Half Stewed Peaches

  • 3 peaches
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil (2 cl)
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced

Step 1: Duck Consommé

Remove the skin and excess fat from the duck necks and wings, then dice into even cubes. Blanch, starting in cold water. Once at a boil,, drain and cool.

Put in a cast iron cocotte, and add the chicken consommé, the calf’s foot jelly, and the aromatics. Bring to a boil, and skim if needed. Add the bouquet garni, the peppercorns, and the coriander.

Put a sheet of parchment paper on the consommé, cover with a lid, and bake in a 250°F (120°C) oven for 3 hours.

Step 2: Foie Gras

One day ahead, remove the nerves from the top part of the foie gras, and season with salt, pepper, cognac, and port. Marinate overnight.
