For those of us that need to satisfy our fat cravings, you will appreciate this simple to prepare delicacy, by buying it fresh from the Butcher. The duck or goose liver comes in pre-sliced, whole, canned and pate form. 1 whole liver is about 1kg. Price ranges from $125 for FZ duck foie gras to $210 for Hudson Valley goose foie gras. It took me a while to source the gourmet butchers in Singapore that stock whole foie gras on a regular basis:
- Swiss Butchery - 30/32 Greenwood Ave
- The Butcher - 44 Jalan Merah Saga
- Culina - @ParkHouse, @Bukit Timah or @Dempsey
- Huber's Butchery - @Bukit Timah or @Tanglin
I usually satisfy my fat cravings with extra virgin olive oil (0 calories), coldwater swordfish sashimi, Chinese roasted pork belly (substitute it with Kurobuta pork) or German pork knuckles. For a treat, flash fry a slice of foie gras and serve with balsamic vinegar and cracked black pepper. Or toss the pate with pasta.
