Cream of chestnut and foie gras soup

Recipe: Cream of chestnut and foie gras soup

Velvety recipe of chestnuts and foie gras, nothing like a good velouté as an appetizer for a large meal. I like soups that are out of the ordinary, at home we never eat the same soup, except for my daughter’s favorite, small pasta soup, no comments. Here the soup is accompanied with a nice escalope of pan-fried foie gras on a round trip, the slice of foie gras rests on the velvety, a few crystals of fleur de sel for the decoration. Mariana the young chef who sharpened my taste buds with this recipe uses vinegar from balsamic cream, I used another large sherry vinegar much less sweet than balsamic.
