Hints & Tips
This is a quick and easy version to making time-consuming regular pate. If you like liver sausage, as I do, you will definitely love this spread.
I've seen various version of this spread on the internet and have always wanted to make it. Even James Beard has his own
favorite version. The following is my version that I hope you will enjoy as much as I do.
