  • Summary

    This elegant dish combines an exotic trio of ingredients -- foie gras, quince, and pomegranate. The richness of the foie gras is complemented by the sweet, tangy fruits. An extravagant delicacy that goes back to Roman times, foie gras is the enlarged liver of a force-fed goose or duck. Duck foie gras has a winey flavor, while goose foie gras is slightly richer and more mellow. Both should be firm to the touch. Look for quinces, bitter fruit that turn sweet with cooking, that are yellow -- a sign of ripeness.

    Ingredients

    • 3 medium-ripe yellow quinces, about 1 1/2 pounds
    • 2 tangerines, juiced (about 1/3 cup)
    • Peel of 1 tangerine
    • 1 cinnamon stick, 1/2 inch long
    • 2 to 3 whole cloves
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 large red pomegranate
    • 1/4 cup red-wine vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 1/2 pounds fresh foie gras, well-chilled
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground white pepper
    • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
    • 4 sprigs fresh chervil
    • 1 tablespoon reserved pomegranate seeds
