Préparation:

Ask your fowl butcher to debone: a Mallard duck, a pheasant hen, a partridge. Chope everything on a heavy grill.

In a pan or a big pot, quickly cook the chicken livers with  the shallots, the thyme flower, 2 crushed juniper bays, deglaze with cognac, season and allow to cool down.

Pan fry in butter the mushrooms cut into quarters.

Mix all the ingredients with 2 eggs previously beaten.

 

Divide the stuffing into 8 equal shares and place in the middle a cube of 25g foie gras.

Place the stuffing between two discs of flaky pastry, close and baste with a previously beaten egg (for the golden effect), renew the operation for the eight torts.
