Foie Gras For Mothers Day

Nothing says “I love you Mom”, like re-legalized fattened goose liver :-)


Seared foie gras/toasted brioche/pear and peach compote/tiny chicken egg.   Yes that egg is not a quail egg but a tiny chicken chicken egg from a fully grown tiny chicken–(picture soon).  Friends with chickens are good friends indeed and it’s always fun to bring new ingredients into peoples homes. This dish was an add on to a Mothers Day brunch I did for a lovely, awesome and entertaining San Diego family.  The menu below was highlighted by a fresh seafood pasta dish that had blue fin sashimi thrown in at the end, ohm nom nom.
