CHOUQUETTES (French pastry sugar puffs) WITH FOIE GRAS

To prepare the cream, crush or mix the content of a foie gras box together with a little cognac and sour cream, season with salt and pepper.
DISGUISED FRUITS WITH FOIE GRAS
If you have any candied plums, dried apricots, dates or figs, do the same as for the chouquettes. Cut the long side of each fruit and garnish with the cream of foie gras, using a pastry bag. Then set in small coloured paper pans.
FOIE GRAS “SUSHIS”
Boil 4 medium potatoes in salted water for 20 minutes. When cooled, peel and cut into rings. Then use a cookie cutter to make small circles.
Place on each of them a slice of foie gras block, add a thin slice of truffle or dried magret and a small pinch of salt flower. The potato can be replaced with a raw peeled black radish.
BRIOCHES WITH FOIE GRAS
Buy 4 small brioches at the pastry shop. Cut off the upper part of the brioches. Make a well in the centre of each brioche and put the crumb collected in a bowl. Baste with 2 tablespoons of port and crush the crumb together with 45g of block of foie gras. Dice 75g of foie gras, spread the crumb preparation within the brioches and end with the pieces of foie gras.
Put the upper parts back on the top of the brioches and bake them in a 150°C (Th.5) oven for 5 minutes.
PIECES OF TOASTED SPICE BREAD WITH FOIE GRAS
