Boxing day we are going to a buffet and I'm going to take some cheese and pate along as we are all mucking in.

Which pate do you love?

Cicken liver is a firm favourite then! Any others as I was going to take two different types

Delia has the easiest recipe for chicken liver pate ever. It takes less than half an hour to make and everyone will think you're a domestic goddess - honest! Make it in advance and put it in the freezer, just take it out the day before so it thaws on time.

I've checked Delia onine for you and the recipe is there.

Sorry, didn't see your last post! I always think a nice coarse terrine is a good compliment to the smooth chicken liver.

Green peppercorn pate is my fav.

Patchwork also do a chicken liver and hazelnut pate which is delicious. But I'd probably go for a smooth slab of mousse de canard.

Chicken Liver Parfait. Smooth with alcoholic kick. Not for children!

yy to Chicken liver

also homemade smoked mackerel - mash up ( not oo much, nice chunky ) a pack or so of smoked mackerel fillets, deskinned. Add creme fraiche, creamed horseradish ( just a tad ), lots of fresh parsely and dill and lemon zest. It is divine. As its quite rich, I prefer it either on water biscuits or dipped into with crunchy chicory heads, rather than bread or toast.
