D’Artagnan is the only place for pure, unadulterated mousse of foie gras. No chicken liver, pork liver, or duck liver is ever added to get in the way of the sweet, silky taste of the foie gras. You'll find our mousse light and creamy with a hint of good Sauternes wine added to the emulsion to enhance the luxurious taste of the foie gras. Simple and pure, our mousse is the way foie gras was meant to be experienced.
Ready to serve, our mousse of foie gras is wonderful when spread on semolina bread with raisins, but can be enjoyed on crackers, or stuffed into prunes (we call that a French Kiss). Use mousse of foie gras for stuffing quails or other small birds, or simply top a resting steak with a pat of mousse for the ultimate steak dinner.
Our foie gras is produced from Moulard ducks raised in a low-stress environment on a 200-acre farm in New York State. The ducks eat a whole-grain diet of corn, soy and fresh clean water, with no hormones or antibiotics ever used.
ingredients: duck foie gras, water, Sauternes wine, salt, sugar, pepper About Foie Gras
Foie gras (pronounced fwah grah) is the fattened liver of a waterfowl (either duck or goose) produced by a special feeding process that results in a luxuriously meaty product with a smooth, velvety texture. Historically, foie gras has been prepared as a fully-cooked paté or terrine and served cold. More recently, seared preparations of foie gras, served with a sweet and tangy fruit garnish or compote, have become increasingly popular in the US.
California customers -- Please note that, as of July 1, 2012, California law prohibits the sale of foie gras within the state of California. While the law does allow for us to sell to you through our website and for you to consume the product, there may be restrictions on your ability to resell them within your own state.
