  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan with aluminum foil.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and shallots; cook and stir until the shallot has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Scrape into a mixing bowl, and set aside to cool. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chanterelles, and cook until the mushrooms are tender and golden around the edges, about 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley, and cook for 30 seconds more, then scrape the mushrooms into the mixing bowl, and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Mix the ground pork, egg whites, salt, and pepper into the mushroom mixture with your hands until evenly blended. Stir in the cream until absorbed by the pork mixture. Line the bottom and sides of the loaf pan with the smoked ham. Pack the meat mixture into the loaf pan and flatten the top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the pate is no longer pink in the center, and has reached an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (72 degrees C), about 1 hour. Serve hot or cold in slices.

I was fortunate enough to have a very kind neighbor who gave me a couple of pounds of fresh chantrelles. I thought this recipe looked intriguing and I wanted to try it. I read the reviews and, h...

Ok thought the flavor in this dish was really good, although I must admit I made some substitutions which probably didn't make it a 5 in total. I didn't have shallots so I did 1/2 an onion, 1 ...

Hit the done button by mistake. I made Chef Johns pate and it was better. To the person who said the it was salty, I agree. But my tolerance for salt is low. Salt is the same by weight but not...

This is absolutely fabulous exactly as written. I've made it twice, the second time I used 1/2 pound ground pork and 1/4 pound ground veal and it was even better!
