Freeze Foie Gras?

  • 3

Can slices of foie gras be frozen without harming their quality? Thanks.

  1. I recently asked the well-known specialty foods (including foie gras & foie gras products) purveyor "D'artagnon" that question regarding their foie gras pate's, spreads, & mousses, & they told me no, that it was not recommended. Don't know if foie gras slices would be different.

      Plain foie gras Is definitely freezable. It's high fat content is the key. In my restaurant I would buy whole lobes. Portion nice 2-3 thick cut slices individually wrap and freeze.

    2. It's absolutely freezable -- it's sold frozen in French supermarkets all year round (because it's really only fresh in the fall)
