For all its controversy, foie gras is undeniably delicious. And one of the best spots to enjoy this decadent treat is the Flagstaff House Restaurant
, on the outskirts of Boulder.
Executive chef Mark Monette serves a perfectly seared cut of grade A foie gras atop crispy and delicate sweetbreads. The richness continues with a buttery brioche base, a drizzle of port-wine reduction, and apple compote.
For the perfect pairing, sip on a glass of Sauternes or an off-dry Riesling.
