Foie Gras Recipes Contest: The best Foie Gras Recipe wins $100 gift certificate!

We are on a mission to create the largest collection of luxury food recipes, and we want your help!  This month, the recipe contest is specifically for foie gras recipes. We are looking for original foie gras recipes–recipes that you have created, tested and perfected.  Is there a prize involved?  Of course. Submit your foie gras recipe to our recipe contest before August 31, and you could win a $100 gift certificate to Mirepoix USA’s online store, where you can redeem the certificate for foie gras, truffles, caviar, artisanal cheese, or any of the products available on our site.

Your foie gras recipe does not have to be complicated.  It can be simple and easy to prepare.  In fact, we think that many of the best foie gras preparations involve only a few ingredients and easy cooking techniques.  If you are more adventurous, and want to submit a foie gras recipe with complex flavor combinations, we’ll be thrilled to know about your creation.  Both approaches have an equal chance of winning.

Foie gras is very distinctive in both flavor and texture, but surprisingly, this unique product complements a vast variety of dishes.

In general, foie gras complements almost any type of red meat, exotic meat or poultry.  Fish such as tuna, salmon, skate wing and seafood such as scallops, lobster, and even abalone are all good counterparts to foie gras.  Vegetables that are especially good with foie gras include sautéed cabbage, braised endive, sautéed mushrooms, fava beans, leeks, carrots and onions, and legumes such as lentils and other dried beans. Of course, foie gras  is delicious with almost any fruit, whether fresh, cooked, or in a sauce or jam-like form.

Though all the above combinations are particularly tasty, there are endless options for new ways to serve foie gras.  Use your imagination, and when you think you have a “winner”, submit your recipes and photos to our recipe contest.  Multiple submissions are allowed, so feel free to send us several of your favorite creations.

Once we have received all the foie gras recipe contest submissions, and have tested the recipes to our heart’s content (and probably gained a few pounds!), we’ll announce the winner.

Here’s how to submit your foie gras recipe:

1. Send us your name, phone number, email address and recipe details (ingredients, instructions, and how many people the recipe serves).  It is optional to also send a two to three sentence biography about yourself (age, where you live, what you do for a living, your interests).  Please send your information before August 31, to recipecontest@mirepoixusa.com.

2. Send pictures that you have taken during the process of preparing your foie gras recipe and/or pictures of the finished plate.  (maximum of three, 200 pixels x 200 pixels)

3. One winning recipe will be announced by September 15, 2011. The person who submits the winning recipe will receive a $100 credit towards product purchases. Credit does not apply to shipping and handling. Winners will be notified by email.

4. Recipes and pictures that are submitted to our recipe contest may be published on our website, blog, newsletter, or other marketing materials. You will be credited for your contribution.

Thank you very much for your interest, and we hope you will submit your best foie gras recipes for your chance to win a $100 Mirepoix USA gift certificate.  Good luck!
