And add a splash of Cognac & Sauternes Place the foie gras into jars, make the fit as tight as possible. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, take the terrine out of refrigerator for 1 hour before cooking, and preheat the oven to 200ºF. Cook the foie gras in the oven in a bain marie for about 45 minutes Cooking is complete when you see a thin layer of melted yellow foie gras butter on the surface. Cover tightly and place in refrigerator for 2 to 3 days to allow the flavors to fully develop.

For plates Lay out the crisp Poppadoms and spoon on some terrine then some mango chutney and top with one more Poppadom / repeat this sequence and then great some fresh coffee over them and service.
