Pâté en croûte and foie gras

Pâté en croute and foie gras recipe

I had prepared this beautiful terrine for Easter, normally an Easter Pâté en croûte must have eggs, I chose to put foie gras, yes we do not remake. In fact, I presented it on the occasion of the tasting evening in April and as it was generous, I kept half of it for the Easter holidays; my son was coming home. I really like the Pâté en croûte and foie gras, it is a starter that must be prepared about ten days in advance and people are not used to enjoying a beautiful homemade pâté en croûte. This slightly spicy Pâté en croûte and foie gras had a particular flavor that I really liked. It is not always easy to brown the sides well, I am not yet satisfied, I found that my Pâté en croûte and foie gras still had a little pale sides, so if you have a technique, I would like it.

A thought to all those connected from France or abroad in love with French cuisine and its wines, here is a great opportunity for you to buy a quality wine, without any risk, to accompany my recipe for Pâté en croute and foie gras. I selected this Bordeaux wine, a Pomerol cuvée Jean Baptiste from the G. Arpin estate after tasting it, we loved it.


Château Franc Maillet 2007– Cuvée Jean Baptiste Pomerol
The flagship of the family, very closed at the start, it releases a fresh bouquet with aeration. With its deep purple color, it is immediately the small red fruits or even the elderberries that dominate and finally some spicy notes are released. The 2016 hatchet guide talks about licorice flavor.
