Who's the Baketard?

Why Baketard? Love to cook, hate to bake. Despite having gone to cooking school and working in some top kitchens, I never learned the baking side of things. I'm building my baking and photography skills, while sharing recipes that rock my world in the mean time.

Hudson Valley Foie Gras 'Lollipops'

Ok, I don’t want to hear about how fussy this recipe is, or how many years of bad karma I’m going to get for making foie gras. IF you like foie, and IF you don’t mind the bad karma that goes with eating foie, this is without a doubt the best preparation I’ve ever had, much less made. A little goes a long way, because it’s incredibly rich, but it is well worth the effort.

Yield: 12 Servings
Tangerine Marmalade:
2 cups tangerine segments
1 tablespoon tangerine zest
¼ cup fresh orange juice
Sugar to taste, depending on the acidity of the tangerines

Foie Gras “Lollipop”:
8 ounces Hudson Valley Foie Gras
2 ounces heavy cream
1 ounce port wine
Salt and pepper
Tangerine Marmalade
Crushed pistachios

Additional Garnish:
50-Year Aged Balsamic Vinegar
Reduced pomegranate juice
Pomegranate seeds
Micro celery

For Tangerine Marmalade:
Add all ingredients to a pot and reduce over medium heat until thickened.

For Foie Gras “Lollipop”:
Dice foie gras then place in a pot with the cream. Gradually heat up the mixture while constantly whisking. Be careful not to go above 120°F or the mousse will break. Once the foie gras is melted, add the port wine and season with salt and pepper. Blend in a blender, then strain through a chinois or fine mesh strainer and chill. To make the lollipops, roll the mousse into a ball, then coat with tangerine marmalade and roll in crushed pistachios. Push a lollipop stick through the center to finish.

Wine Pairing:
Demi-Sec, Gruet, New Mexico, NV

Sounds good to me. I can make this recipe and serve it for dinner. A bottle of chardonnay will be nice with it.
