Pâté à la Valironrons

Here is a wonderful pâté recipe we have from our French friends. You need a meet grinder, but otherwise it’s not hard to make.

Ingredients (1 pound ~= 450g):

  • 1 pound of chicken liver (or of any other poultry)
  • 1/2 pound of bacon
  • 1/2 pound of boneless pork
  • 1 big bunch of parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 8g of salt (1/2 tablespoon)
  • and then, at wish: black pepper, garlic, mustard, coriander (cilantro), juniper, clove, pistachios,…
  • Preparation: Grind everything*, homogenize, and put in a rectangular baking dish. Cook in the oven in a bain-marie for about 1h:30min at 380F (~193C). Cool down before serving.

    [*] Grinding chicken liver works best if it’s slightly frozen, otherwise the process is a bit messy.
