Cream of Foie Gras with Oil of Truffle in Hazelnut Cappuccino (8 servings)

Invented in 1780 by an Alsatian chef, foie gras is a traditional must at Christmas. It exists in several different forms.

For the cream:
1.5 l of poultry stock (or chicken stock)
50 g of butter
50 g of flour
20 cl of cream
100 g of foie gras
a few drops of oil of truffle
salt, pepper

Preparation:
Melt the butter. Add the flour and leave to cook until slightly roux-coloured. Leave to cool.
Heat the poultry stock and pour it onto the roux. Mix and bring to the boil. Add the cream and the foie gras.
Mix and test for seasoning.

For the Hazelnut Cappuccino:
10 cl of cream
salt, pepper
hazelnut oil
whole hazelnuts

Preparation:
Beat the salt, pepper and hazelnut oil into the cream till it stiffens
Lightly crush the hazelnuts and grill them.
Add a few hazelnuts to the whipped cream.
