Foie gras in a tea towel

We love foie gras, in all its forms cold or hot, it doesn’t matter as long as it’s foie gras, it will be welcome. I like foie gras lobes from the South West of France, but it’s not always easy to find them at reasonable prices. The foie gras au torchon is class, for I am a fan of a half cooked.
