Sprinkle the lemon juice over the pear slices to keep them from going brown.
Using a small pastry cutter (about 1 inch in diameter), cut out circles from the slices.
Take a circle of quince paste as your base, layer a circle of foie gras on top, then a layer of quince paste, and top with a layer of pear.
Stick a skewer through the middle to hold the slices together.
Season with black pepper.
