You know, while I wasn’t too excited to be making “chopped liver” (p 32) – though I prefer to call it pâté de campagne, sounds so much more elegant! – for this week’s French Fridays with Dorie, it wasn’t that bad. I’ll admit I am not a fan of handling raw liver and I’m much more likely to eat a pâté type dish if I haven’t had any part in preparing it but this one was so quick and easy, I had it prepped and in the fridge before I knew it. I guess when you’ve spent a year working through a series of charcuterie challenges (2 times a month!) a bit of chopped liver is child’s play! If you’re interested in the meatiest meal ever including not one but TWO types of pâté, check out our last Charcutepalooza post (“The Last Supper” – not really!)
I tasted a tiny bit of this and thought it was *ok* but it got the thumbs up from Mr Neil who enjoyed this for lunch a couple of times last week – served with thinly sliced baguette, it made for a big of a fancy pants lunch. Homemade pâté for lunch? Whatever next?
French Fridays with Dorie participants do not publish the recipes on our blogs (though this week, you can find the recipe online here), we prefer if you purchase Around My French Table for yourselves which you can do here on Amazon or Amazon Canada. Or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Go on, treat yourself then join us here!
