Truely yummy. I wanted something less artificial tasting so I chopped 1/2 onion and 7 garlic gloves and cooked them with wine and the livers. Outstanding! Read More

The pate was delicious. I would suggest using additional pistachios left whole and divide the mixture into small chafing dishes for serving before refrigerating. Read More

Absolutely delicious! No more store-bought for me. I used real onion and garlic instead of the powdered. Used 1/3 cup of wine 95% fat-free cream cheese. Butter-flavoured margarine instead of butter. I served this after only chilling for almost two hours; I think overnight would be best but it still tasted amazing. Great recipe! Read More

This pate is the BEST pate I've ever had. The only change was that I sauteed an onion in the butter on low heat for about 30 minutes before adding the liver and fresh garlic. I used organic chicken liver and organic onion bullion. I also substituted cooking sherry for the wine. Even if you don't like liver you'll love this! Read More

This was a good recipe and the pate tasted great. I was a little nervous because the picture turned me off a little but tried it anyway glad I did! I did everything to the same but squeezed a little pate on a cracker for a nice presentation. Read More
