    1. Hong, would love to try this some day once I lay my hands on those livers :)

    2. issit possible to test out with other such as fish/salmon/etc instead of just only liver? hehe after all cooking is an art :)

    3. Hong, liver texture is quite different from fish. Well, u can also try it out & let me know. Hahaha!

  2. hehehe, I didn't even know what Foie Grass is.. Nevermind, I just don't fancy French Cuisine so much.. :D

    1. Aki, that's French for duck/goose liver. A pricey item on a restaurant menu. One of my fave must-have items in fine-dining. I'm already salivating!! Hahaha!

  3. Such a beautiful dish. you look great in the pic too! =)

  4. Oh yes, Chef Julien Bompard had certainly caught my attention in his cooking demo. I remembered watching him doing a demo on TV in one of those DBS bank's branch advertising TV. I kept wondering what has the cooking demo got to do with DBS bank as i couldn't hear the background dialogue. ah.... now i know why.... this Pan-seared Foie Gras had certainly sent me drooling......

    1. DS, that's nice! Hahaha! Now u can have a better viewing. Enjoy!

  5. Shirley, that was a great video clip! I didn't realize the custard was caramelized when you first wrote about it -- now I want to try it twice as much! :) Can't imagine how delicious that duo must have been... so glad you got to meet Chef Bompard and sample his exquisite cuisine.

    1. Kim, I glad u've enjoyed the clip! I'm just as excited to try, my dear!

  6. Hey, its the same chef who made summer terrain. I checked the video how easily he made the custard with duck liver.

    1. Balvinder, yap! He made 3 lovely dishes that day. Definitely a plus with the video if we're making it at home :)
