    Used different ingredients. Easy to make and very tasty, but plain. I added 1/2 teasp hot sauce and 1 TB lemon juice which spiced it up. Will definitely make it again!  -  08 Oct 2008


    I was just served this wonderful "mock" pate at a christmas party, and really was impressed. I would serve this to anyone and know it will be enjoyed. The texture, seasoning and colour all suggest a true pate.  -  08 Oct 2008


    This pate was enjoyed by all at a dinner party that my sister gave. It is so delicious. The texture and taste is beyond incredible. I can't wait to make it for my guests someday. I also plan on using it as a filling for our work lunches. Thank you!!!!!!!  -  08 Oct 2008
