Chicken and Estragon Paté / Kylling- og Estragonpaté

A pâté (from French pâté; dough or mass) is a solid paste, preferably with embedded strips or pieces of, for example ham, fish or chicken liver. Pates can be served both hot and cold, but is considered to be the most tasty after a few days of cooling.

Patés are mostly made of minced fish, shellfish, meat or poultry, especially liver and blubber. The paste of one or more types of meat, fish or shellfish are mixed in the raw state with spices and eggs or other binders. A bird which is filled with pate is called a galantine.  Fruit can also be baked into a pâté.

Paté is usually served cold, often with sweet and sour accessories such as cumberlands sauce and cucumber salad. It can form part of the first or main dishes or be used as sandwich topping.

Chicken Liver Pate / Kyllingleverpaté

A Scandinavian Christmas buffet classic found on grytelokket.com121_kyllingleverpate_post

Scandinavian Christmas buffets are serious stuff. A few slices of smoked salmon, a little cured meat and some pickles simply wont do. Pates, cold pork ribs, meat rolls, potted and pickled herring, smoked and cured salmon or trout, cold or hot Christmas patties and sausages, salads, the list goes on for ever. Chicken liver pate is a favourite on these buffets and it’s not hard to make.
