I'm making a pate to bring to a holiday party next Saturday, and I'd love to hear your favorite recipes. I'm talking chicken liver pate.
My favorite is from Joy of Cooking, and it involves butter (of course), shallots, livers, a Golden Delicious apple, Calvados and heavy cream.
I loves the apple-y hints to this pate, but I've relied on it for too long and would like to try something new.
Pate-like items that I've clipped from food sections over the years but never tried: Balthazar's chicken liver mousse, AOC's chicken liver crostini with pancetta, chicken "faux gras" from Michel Richard's "Happy in the Kitchen" (which has an appealingly green parsley gelee on top).
Any thoughts or favorites out there? All help is much appreciated.
