Chicken liver patê

Chicken liver and pate? Two words that spell pleasure and please my taste buds.

I love the creaminess and softness of it and paired with my orange and lemon marmalade it is a perfect match as the acidic/tangy taste cuts the richness of the pate.

Used to eat it with normal bread but as now I am on a keto diet, I toast some of my perfect bread and have it with it, or even with a seeded keto toast.

I adapted this recipe (after looking at literally dozens of them) from Drizzle and Dip ( that has beautiful recipes and photography. Did not need to adapt it too much, just small touches, that made it to my personal taste.

Creamy, with a touch of alcohol, I adapted this recipe from Drizzle and Dip, to make it more to my taste. I still want to try to make it with pork liver, if and when I find it. Pork liver is sweet and with an amazing texture and will do fine here.

    I finally made this one! I’m getting good at/more comfortable making liver mousse. I didn’t have the exact spices or even an onion 😂 but used a Balkan herb mix, chubritsa instead of sage, then I put in some turmeric for health, so also some cayenne and black pepper to help “activate” the turmeric. The butter on top is forming up in the fridge as I write—I already scraped out a bit from the food processor. Delish, of course! Thanks Di!
