Force-feed it to geese, to make meta foie gras!

Failing that, slice it, dip in iced water to firm it, roll in
breadcrumbs and fry it gently - beware, though, the fat content means it
disintegrates fairly quickly. It goes very well on toast.

Other people seem to like poaching it. I've never tried that though. The
idea seems to be that you wrap a piece of foie gras in a cloth, and
poach it briefly in boiling water. Then you slice it up. I would guess
that it goes very well with truffles.
