Best Chicken Liver Pate Recipe – Traditional Delicacy

About Best Chicken Liver Pate Recipe

 

Preparing a traditional chicken liver pate takes a little more time and effort , but it is worth to make it definitely. As a result of following my best chicken liver pate recipe you will enjoy a delicate, smooth and aromatic chicken liver pate.

There are three basic ingredients which cannot be missing in the process of making a traditional chicken liver pate. Cooking a chicken liver pate starts with melting the duck fat. Simmering the chicken livers slowly with Port wine helps to make them tender while all the alcohol evaporates. Finally, garlic adds a special aroma to the chicken liver pate.

Once your chicken liver pate is ready it is necessary to let it rest in the fridge. I transfer my chicken liver pate into the bread loaf usually. You can use any other glass or ceramic dish to store the chicken liver pate in the fridge. It takes a couple of hours to chill the chicken liver pate completely, so the best is to let it rest overnight.

The next day replace your chicken liver pate to the tray turning it upside down. Cut with a sharp knife into about 1 inch thick pieces and arrange on the serving plates, cutting each piece of chicken liver pate crosswise. Add a spoonful of  canned cranberries on each serving plate. Serve with a piece of crunchy fresh bread or toast if you prefer.

Hope you will enjoy making your best chicken liver pate at home. Looking forward to receiving your comments below. :)

How To Make Bolognese Sauce – Delicious Spaghetti Dinner

IMG_3088

 

If you love the freshly cooked sauce full of great tasting meat, served on the top your favorite pasta, you will like the idea of making your homemade bolognese sauce to share with your family tonight.

Following the traditional recipe, the bolognese sauce should be cooked using a ground beef. I cook my own variation of the sauce. I use a ground veal meat to cook the bolognese sauce. As a result of using a veal meat, the sauce is tasting much smoother.

I always use a freshly ground veal, instead of the ready to use, packaged in the food store one.  I cook the ground veal with a pureed plum tomatoes. In the summer, juicy, ripe tomatoes can substitute for the tomato puree. Peel and cut roughly the fresh tomatoes before adding them to the ground meat.

Simmering slowly, adding the ingredients gradually,  one by one and seasoning slightly, is the secret of making your perfect, fresh and aromatic bolognese sauce.

Serve your bolognese sauce on the top of your favorite pasta. For me, the combination of bolognese sauce and freshly cooked spaghetti or spaghettini /the thinner ones/, sprinkled with a freshly grated parmesan cheese makes dinner perfect anytime.

I hope you’ll get inspired by my bolognese sauce recipe. I’d be more than happy if you  leave me your comments below. :)
