  1. Recipe rating: 5 of 5 Best pate ever

    I have never liked pate but my parents and boyfriend all enjoy it. So I though I will make my own. I'm still not keen on it but everyone else loved it, so much my dad has requested I make him some in sealable pots so he has a supply. I didn't include the olives as we don't eat them.
