Seared Foie Gras with Corn Pudding and Blueberries

Makes 1 Serving

This recipe cuts the extreme (but luxurious) richness foie gras with the fruity, vinegar-ed bite of pickled blueberries and compliments it with the sweetness of a corn pudding.

INGREDIENTS
  • 2oz slice of Grade A Foie Gras (frozen)
  • 2 ears of Sweet Corn, cleaned and shucked from cob
  • 1oz Unsalted Butter
  • 6 Fresh Blueberries, sliced in half
  • 5 leaves of Fresh Basil
  • 6 Bow Hill Pickled Blueberries

DIRECTIONS

1

Reserve 1/4 of the shucked corn and place the rest into a high power blender. Puree on high until liquefied. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer or chinois into a sauce pan.
2

Cook over medium-high heat using a spatula constantly scraping the bottom of the pan to prevent scorching. Once the liquid begins to simmer and thicken (it should resemble crème anglaise) immediately remove from heat.
3

Pre-heat a saute pan over high heat. Add butter and the remainder of the corn, then saute quickly until slightly browned. Remove from the heat and add to your thickened “corn pudding.”
4

Remove the foie gras from the freezer and re-heat the same pan used for the corn over high-heat.
5

Score both sides of the foie gras and season it liberally with salt and pepper.
6

Lay the foie gras into the very hot pan and sear for 2 minutes per side, until evenly colored. Remove it from the pan and place on to a paper towel while plating the accompaniments.
7

Place corn pudding in the middle of a large flat plate and top it with the foie gras. Garnish with both the fresh and pickled blueberries along with the basil. Serve immediately.
