Tip

You can freeze this pate

I have been making this for years as my party piece.   It is easy as, just remember no matter what weight of chicken livers use 1/2 that weight in butter.  Don't think about it just do it.  Decadent.

    This recipe makes a large quantity of paté, but I don't think it's going to make it to the freezer!

    I mixed pistachios and macadamias, and used pedro ximenez sherry for the liquor. What a divine paté; it's going to be my 'go to' recipe from now on. Thank you! tmrc_emoticons.)

    This recipe is to die for, I have some many postive comments and as a new thermomix user it is so easy.  I freeze it as if left in the fridge it would be gone in no time. Love it, thanks so much for sharing.

    Thank you for this recipe Gretchen! I actually discovered your recipe on the Super Kitchen Machine Site. I am vegetarian and don't always get meat dishes right - but this turned out absolutely perfectly. The comments I got from those who ate it were very, very positive. Thanks again!

    I was a bit disappointed with this pate.  I froze most of it for Christmas and kept a small container in the fridge however once started it seemed to turn to water.  Any idea what could have happened.  I did use more livers  than the recipe suggested but adjusted everything as stated in the tips.
