The best New Year’s Eve party holds delights for the senses, especially our favorite sense: taste. With champagne, truffles, caviar, foie gras and charcuterie you have the makings of a very fine evening.
Let’s talk about foie gras, shall we? There are so many ways to enjoy it, but here are five simple ideas for getting festive with foie gras on New Year’s Eve.
1. Go Nuts For These Morsels
Trust us, make these for the party. This recipe for Mousse of Foie Gras with Candied Hazelnuts is simple – most of the work is done ahead in candying the nuts. Get a good bread with raisins, and the foie gras and hazelnuts will sing in harmony with champagne.
2. The Creamiest Cream Puff
Ah, yes. Foie Gras Cream Puffs with Black Truffle … you know it’s a special occasion with these crispy choux puffs packed with silky, truffle-studded foie gras. They can be made earlier in the day and chilled until ready to serve.
3. Butter Made Better
These are a few of our favorite things … foie gras and butter creamed together make Foie Gras Butter. Serve with figs, fine toast points or sliced baguette.
4. The Path to Foie Gras Heaven
Keep it simple. Foie Gras Torchon is a classic preparation, the torchon offers the essence of foie gras: purity of flavor, creamy, delicate texture and luxurious richness. And it’s ready to serve. Add coarse salt, brioche bread, a fruit chutney and you’re all set.
5. Small Burger, Big Flavor
Sliders are finger food, and great for parties. The hungry ones can eat several, and the grazers can move to the next platter. These burgers are made with ground buffalo and garnished with Medallion of Foie Gras with Black Truffles and onion jam, which makes them fancy enough for your New Year’s soiree.
