Terrine of foie gras, stewed with spicy quince
• 1.5 kg of raw duck foie gras • 12g of fine salt • 3 pinches of ground white pepper • 30 cl of gewurztraminer late harvest • 2 kg of quinces • 600 g caster sugar • 6 sticks of cinnamon • 4 cloves • 2 vanilla pods
Preparation of recipe
Remove the nerves from the foie gras very cleanly on a greaseproof paper, trying to leave the whole pieces. Season and marinate with the gewurztraminer. Tamp the liver in a 1.5 L terrine. Cover and cook in a bain-marie at 100 ° C (thermostat 3-4) for 45 minutes. Squeeze lightly, let cool in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours.
Peel the quince and cut into cubes. Stuff them in a light syrup made with sugar and 1 L of water with added spices and vanilla. Keep them in this syrup.
When serving, unmold the terrine with a knife dipped in hot water. Cut a nice slice per person. Garnish each plate with two spoonfuls of well-drained quince.
