    Assemble the fingers by placing each piece of foie gras on a piece of pastry.

    Keep in the fridge, but take them out 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavour of the foie gras to develop fully.

    Possible variation: put a thinner slice of foie gras between 2 pieces of pastry that has been scattered with grated gruyère before baking.

Remarks:

The pastry can be prepared several days in advance if it is kept tightly wrapped in stretch film in the fridge.

The number of fingers indicated is only approximate and will depend on the size you cut the pieces of pastry. So don't worry if you have a few more or less.

The sesame seeds can be replaced with others seeds of your choice (linseed, poppy seeds, etc.).

And to drink?

A glass of champagne.
