Foie Gras - Easy to Prepare, Incredibly Good- Starting at 1.5 Pounds Grade A (10-15 servings)Hudson Valley Foie Gras
It is hard to get to the subject of Foie Gras with Gene Tang as he loves to fly fish so much we forget to talk about much else. Chef tang does believe that Foie Gras is a must for a passionate cook's kitchen and that Hudson Valley has the best flavor and animal husbandry. Hudson Valley is a cage free farm using only the Moulard Duck, a crossbreed between a Muscovy male and a Pekin female - a crossbreed which is disease resistant. Hudson Valley prides itself on the taste which they attribute to the 4 times more attention to the care of ducks than other operations. Foie Gras was once most popular in pates and terrines but now the hot seared cooking is favored. The product here is fresh and never frozen and is the "A" grade from their farm.
