Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: French
Serves: 4
  • 4 medallions of uncooked fresh foie gras
  • 4 toasted rounds of brioche
  • 1 can pitted cherries in water (14.5 ounces)
  • 3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 Cup dry red wine
  • 1/4 Cup shallots, minced
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 Cup chicken broth
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 Tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • chives, at least 2-inches long
  1. Cook the vinegar and sugar over medium heat until sugar is dissolved and the mixture is reduced to a glaze. Add the wine, shallot and cinnamon stick and boil until the liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup. Add the broth and cherries and simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the cinnamon stick and stir in the cornstarch, simmering for 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Cover and keep warm.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan over high flame and sear the foie gras medallions about 30 seconds per side. They should be crisp, golden brown, but not burned.
  5. Set a brioche toast on each of four plates. Place one foie gras slice on each of the brioche toasts, and top with cherry sauce, garnish with chives.
