    Agree, but you need to pimp it.
    I never tried Gude though...

    Knyfeknerd, the mousse was pretty straight forward:

    500g of meat, 10-20grams of parsley with stalks all together, salt, pepper, 2 whole eggs
    around 10 good sized cloves of garlic, one big white onion, something of the medium sized spanish onion. Both finely chopped

    I sautee garlic and onion for around an hour[just oil], but couldnt really tell you how long. I smell it, and when I like the smell, its done.
    First off it will smell raw, after quarter maybe little sweet'ish and then mellow, i dont stir too much and after some more time it begins to caramelise. At that stage i fry it couple of minutes and its done.
    You could cook onion differently but I wouldnt use raw onion, i think you dont roast the chicken for long enough to break down the onions and garlic well enough.

    I add this to the meat and drive it all until smooth. Season rather well.

    I dont refrigerate it just waits for the few minutes i take to bone out the chicken.

    Now, I dont know how it would go with foie gras... Duck is definitely a great idea with the thick layer of fat. Great bird for stuffing
    I never tried with foie gras cause if I eat it, I just pan fry and slice some apple with it!
    no cream? like a mousseline

    I have the other version of wiktorinox also. Dont use it a lot. Try not to use bread knife at all, but if I cut a joint or bird in the dish, i wouldnt use any other than serrated knife
    Im not sayign its bad knife or something. I just dont like it.

    No need for a cream there
    Would rather use stale baguette to fluff the stuffing up, but in the same time I wanted the whole thing to hold up nicely, and the stuffing not to expand too much.

    Definitely would use cream for spinach and garlic stuffing, which is just a "marriage from heaven".
    OK, ménage ā trois from heaven
