So I’ll be honest about something. Pâté is not an attractive word. I mean really, when you say it out loud. Pa-tay? Yeah, no thanks… But don’t let this name fool you. I mean, it is better than saying buttery liver puree right?
The first time I ever tried a pâté was a life altering experience for me. I knew it had liver in it but the other ingredients were a mystery. I went into it hesitantly… pureed livers? Yeah… about that….
But then I tried it. The flavor was amazing! It was buttery, it was rich and the flavors danced in my mouth leaving me wanting more and more. Just give me a loaf of french bread and some pâté and I’ll be all set guys. And then after my mind and mouth had exploded a little and I settled down from this rush of delicious excitement, I started thinking about what was in it. I looked it up and it all made sense. Butter and livers are two very rich ingredients and putting them together with a couple of aromatics is simply divine. It just works.
And guess what? You don’t need to pay $10 for a couple of small pieces of bread and one little 2 ounce piece of pâté only to be left wanting more. You can make it at home now and it is seriously so easy and makes a ton.
Hello hello! So, I know many of you are probably getting a little annoyed with my very frequent posts about music lately, I know I am a food blog above anything else, but I live in Austin. We are kind of known for music.
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you about this really cool band I found recently.
Today I want to share with ya’ll some cookies I made recently.
Not just any type of cookies, no, these are chocolate. Not just ordinary chocolate chip cookies you’ve had a million times, these chocolate chip cookies have whiskey in them and are sprinkled with extra salt.
