1-1/2 Tbsp finely ground dried mushrooms (I use porcinis)
12 ounces, 3/4 pound mixed mushrooms, caps quartered, stems roughly chopped (remove and discard shiitaki stems)
2 Tbsp EVOO...
No picture for this, because I only make it when I´ve got a load of friends round for drinks. It´s so simple, it´s ridiculous - but it´s just great with a plateful of bread and some good wine!
100 gms almonds, skin and all
4-5 anchovy fillets
Black pepper to taste
Olive oil - as much...
If you decide to make this, ask your houseguests if they have ever had duck liver pate. If they say no, tell them, “then you are in for a treat!” You aren’t technically lying, because you didn’t say “this is duck liver pate”. And, you've just brightened their day because they get to tell their...
For anyone that doesn't know I'm part of a group that formed 10 years ago, after the earthquakes small businesses were finding it hard to,survive so we as a group formed dinner club, first Wednesday every month with everyone getting a pick around their birthday. But December we push the boat out...
I remember a time when I used to make a lot of Pâtés and Terrines - it was probably back in the late '70's to mid '80's. I really love them but rarely make them any more. Am I a victim of fashion? It used to be the case that pâté was often offered as a starter in restaurants and also as a pub...

1 clove of garlic
3 oz butter
8 oz chicken livers
1 bay leaf
few sprigs thyme or oregano (or pinch of dried)
2 teaspoons brandy
salt and pepper
For a dairy free smoked mackerel pate, I used:
200g smoked mackerel smashed up with a fork. Mixed with...
5 heaped tsp vegan cream cheese (violife)
1/2 lemon zest
1/2 lemon juice
1/2 green chili
1/2 tsp ginger paste
1/2 tsp garlic paste
Salt and pepper
Guest really liked it. Very simple.
A take on a classic 60’s dinner party starter: smoked mackerel pâté; using Greek yoghurt and Indian spices. The beetroot achaar (pickle) adds an aromatic, sweet and earthy contrast. Serve it with mini Naan breads or toasted sourdough. An easy no-cook recipe!
Ingredients (serves 2)
Being a bit busy, I have no recipes to post here, just ideas.
I was thinking how fantastic Sushi is and how it opens up possibilities for endless creativity. And this got me thinking on other food items that share those traits. Pâtés, Terrines, Tapanades, Hors d'oeuvres and other...

This is my first post so please be gentle :happy:
I have started to get more into home cooking since tiny one started getting a bit bigger and yesterday I made lambs liver pate. It's tasty but very very rich and could really do with something sweet to go with it on the cracker/toast. Can...
I had thought I had written this one up, but apparently I haven't...
The list of ingredients looks long and if you are not familiar with a vegan lifestyle probably looks a touch odd but the recipe is really easy and quick to make once the beans are cooked and you can always cheat and use canned...
