Chicken Liver Pate

Category: food

Served with fresh, crusty bread, you won’t be able to get enough of this chicken liver pâté. The best part? You can make the pâté in the morning or the night before and pull out of the fridge just before serving. Voila!


1. For the pate: Combine the livers, onion, garlic, bay leaf, thyme leaves, water, and 0.5 tsp of salt in a saucepan.

2. Heat over a medium heat until simmer, and then cover and cook over a reduced heat for 3 minutes.

3. Remove from the heat, cover with a lid, and set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

4. After 5 minutes, discard the bay leaf and transfer the livers and other ingredients to a food processor with a slotted spoon.

5. Add 2 tbsp of the butter as well as the cognac and blend on high until smooth. Add another 2 tbsp butter, blend again until incorporated, and then add another 2 tbsp butter, blending again. Season to taste with salt and pepper and then scrape the pate into a serving bowl, smoothing the top flat.

6. Melt the remaining butter in a small saucepan. Pour over the pate in the bowl, and then cover and chill until set, 1 hour.

7. To serve: Garnish the pate with thyme sprigs and serve with slices of baguette and the goats' cheese.
