(French Style CHICKEN LIVER PATE- what else?)

Serves 6-8 (or 4 greedy ones!)

Cooking time about 10 minutes, but add 20 minutes prep


What you’ll need

  • 400g organic chicken liver
  • 300g grass-fed butter, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • Half an onion, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tbsp brandy
  • ½ tsp grated nutmeg or organic nutmeg powder
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 50g butter, for topping


What you do with this:

  1. Trim the chicken livers of any stringy sinews, then rinse them and gently pat dry with kitchen paper.

I’ve just brought in a pile of the most marvellous organic and conventional (but ALL non-irradiated) herbs and spices.  Why? Because I don’t trust those I buy off the shelf! Simple.  They could be, stale, ‘cut’ with cornflour or wheat starch, heaven knows what else, and what kind of conditions are they dried in?
