Cut the endives in half lengthwise and place in a small pan. Add lemon juice, a pinch of salt and 50ml water. Cover with foil and cook in oven for about 15 minutes. Drain and cut each half of endive into three lengthways.
In a frying pan, melt butter and add endives. Sprinkle with icing sugar and cook to a golden colour. Remove from pan and keep warm.
Season and sauté the foie gras in a hot pan and remove. Deglaze with balsamic vinegar and Madeira. Add veal stock and a few cubes of butter, season and pass through chinois.
