Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place currants in a small bowl; cover with orange liqueur. Let soak until plump, about 1 hour.

  • Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in the hot butter until softened, about 1 minute. Add chicken livers; cook and stir until no longer pink in the center, 5 to 8 minutes.

  • Place remaining 3/4 cup butter, chicken liver mixture, heavy cream, thyme, and allspice in a food processor; blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in currants and orange liqueur. Season pate with salt and pepper.

  • Divide pate among small ramekins. Refrigerate until firm, at least 3 hours.

Cook's Note:

If you leave out the currants, be sure to still add the orange brandy to the mix.
