Recipe Seared foie gras with green apples

I like working with foie gras, I love it from every angle, raw, semi-cooked, in a tea towel, in salt, in a terrine… .It is always a pleasure, and the gaze of your guests when the plates arrive on the table, pleasure and nothing but happiness. Today foie gras is democratized, it is now found for the Christmas and Easter periods quite easily in supermarkets, some now offers good quality French foie gras.
