You can make an awesome beef wellington, but I prefer it more simply. It is easiest to sear correctly if it is slightly frozen and is gorgeous atop a bed of sauteed julienne of cabbage and a mix of mushrooms (scented with thyme). This is a dish I recently learned in Paris and was served along with duck breast (magret, that is, duck that was raised for foie gras). This was a spectacular, though very simple, meal. Honestly, I think that simple is the trick, foie gras is such a special treat that it should be allowed to shine for what it is. (In class we made a simple caramel of sugar and water, poured it onto parchment and cooled it. We then broke it into pieces and stacked the foie gras, the sweetness of the carmalized sugar and the crunch mixed with the fattiness of the foie gras, it was mind blowing.)

How much do you have? My favorite is the traditional roasting of the whole lobe in terrine. The finished product is served cold with condiments. Ooh, now I'm getting hungry!

A whole lobe. About 1.5 lbs. do you have suggestion of how to clean and cook?
