Foie Gras with Figs, and the world’s first cookbook

When one thinks of traditional Foie Gras, one imagines the tradition of the southwest of France, but there really is no Foie Gras recipe more traditional than that of figs. Why do we state this with such certainty? Because this dish is one of those that appears in the first known recipe book.

The book in question is “De Re Coquinaria” (On Kitchen Matters), a Roman book that probably dates from the 1st century, but whose oldest manuscript found comes from the 5th century.

Among the many different recipes in the book, aimed at a wealthy public that could afford exotic ingredients, we find the Iecur Ficatum. Iecur is the Latin word for liver, while Ficatum means fed on figs.

This Foie Gras was not just any ingredient. We can find two recipes in the book that use it, and both are found in part VII, Polyteles, which is expressly devoted to gourmet dishes. In fact, Foie Gras was already considered a delicacy in classical cultures before this book, and the name of this recipe would end up transforming Latin languages ​​in a very curious way.

Our Foie Gras tasting tips:

  • How to get the best texture in Foie Gras?:

To obtain the best texture for your Foie Gras, place it in the refrigerator one hour before serving. This will give the Foie Gras the ideal consistency for tasting. Allow it to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

  • Which bread to use with Foie Gras?:

Foie Gras has subtle flavours that can be hidden by very toasted breads. Our recommendation is to use simple flavoured breads such as peasant bread. Slightly fruity breads such as ginger can add an extra touch of flavour without overpowering the Foie Gras.

  • Which wine goes best with Foie Gras?:

The pairing of Foie Gras does not have just one correct answer. At Relais Gourmet, we recommend the following options:

    • Pairing Foie Gras with sweet wines:

Wines such as Muscatel or Malvasia, or the French Monbazillac, Jurançon, or late Alsace, are perfect accompaniments to Foie Gras. Their natural acidity helps to harmonise the combination and makes them easy to digest.

    • Pairing Foie Gras with dry white wines:

Instead of harmonising, the texture of wines such as the fruity Catalan Xarel-lo, or the French Condrieu or Crozes-Hermitage, generate an interesting and elegant contrast on the palate.

    • Pairing Foie Gras with Champagne:

Lightly vinous champagnes are a very successful combination with our Foie Gras. The bubbles lend lightness to the apéritif, while their smoothness helps to reinforce the gourmet subtlety of good Foie Gras. We especially recommend bottles made with Pinot Noir or bottles of cava, as they are less acidic than champagne made with Chardonnay.

    • Pairing Foie Gras with red wine:

In the south-east of France, it is not uncommon to combine Foie Gras with full-bodied red wines. Irouleguy, Cahors, Madiran or Bergerac are some good red wines that will reinforce its flavour with the subtlety of Foie Gras. In Spanish wines, a good red wine from Ribera del Duero is a safe bet. When pairing with red wine, it is especially recommended to use a very simple tasting bread.
