  • 280 g duck foie gras, in 4 slices
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 3 McIntosh apples, peeled and cored, cut in 3mm slices
  • 2 pinches nutmeg
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup brandy
  • Fresh chives, finely chopped
  • Salt and ground pepper


    1. In a big pan at medium heat, melt the butter. Add the apples, nutmeg, maple syrup and half of the brandy. Stir well and simmer for 6-8 minutes until apples are soft and liquid is mostly evaporated.
    2. Add the rest of the brandy then light on fire with a lighter. Be careful with fire! Always make sure the fan is off before playing with fire. Remove from heat.
    3. Make ¼" crosswise incisions in the foie gras slices, on both sides, then generously season with salt and pepper.
    4. In a big pan heated at high heat (pan needs to be smoking hot), place the foie gras slices in the pan and let cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute until nicely browned. Gently flip and cook for another 30 seconds to 1 minute. Place on a plate and let cool down for 2 minutes.
    5. Pour the apples on a nice plate, add the foie gras on top and garnish with chives!
