For the rutabagas

  • Wash rutabagas and pat dry.  Then place them in a small pot with the duck fat, rosemary, garlic, and onion.  Bring the pot up to a low simmer.  Keep on low and cook for roughly 30 or until tender and cooked through (test with a cake tester).  Turn off the heat and set aside and keep warm.  

Foie Sauce

  • Place the 3 cups of chicken stock in a pot and reduce down to 1 1/2 cups.  Then place a sauté pan on high heat.  Season foie gras with salt and pepper and cook on both sides for 2 minutes.  
    Pour the chicken broth in to a blender along with the cooked foie gras and fat that is in the pan.  Puree until smooth and add the butter, sherry vinegar, and season with salt.  Set aside and keep warm. 

To finish

  • In a saute pan on medium high heat add butter and miners lettuce.  Saute for 30 seconds just enough to start to wilt the lettuce.  Add the grilled asparagus and turn off the heat.  Then take a rutabaga out of the oil and drain well.  
    Season with salt and place in a bowl.  Add the miners, and asparagus next to it.  Ladle in 2 oz of sauce.  Finish the dish with the radish and mustard flowers, along with the fried rutabaga chips.  Drizzle with a good olive oil and pink peppercorns, serve and enjoy!
