How To Make Chicken Liver Pâté

Also known as just pâté, a liver pâté is known to be one of the most indulgent dishes in the culinary world. If you’re ever heard of foie gras, you’ll know what we’re talking about. As with most decadent foods, it often comes with a hefty price tag at the store. But never fear, that’s why we’re here! A good pâté doesn’t take a lot of fancy ingredients or a lot of time to make, just a little bit of love. Just sautee together some base ingredients like garlic, onion, herbs and chicken livers. Then throw it all in a food processor or blender and puree until super smooth. You can top with more herbed butter, layer in a terrine or place in individual ramekins for one seriously awesome snack. Also, for maximum flavor, we recommend making it one to two days ahead of eating it. If you can resist!

So follow along with our culinary chef as he shows you how to make a gorgeous homemade chicken liver pâté in this online cooking class. You haven’t tasted savory decadence until you’ve tasted this dish!
