Pâté Rendezvous:
Around the World with Alexian Pâté

With the New Year upon us, we're all working to meet our New Year's resolutions. Two popular resolutions come up time and time again: learn to cook (or learn to cook a new cuisine) and travel more.

We at Alexian can help with both, by taking you on a culinary adventure right from the comfort of your own kitchen. Pâté is an amazing food, because it, in many ways, transcends cultures. While traditionally French, the flavors can be interpreted into many different cuisines.

A Trip to Vietnam: Pâté-inspired Bahn Mi

Our Chicken Liver Mousse marries with traditional Vietnamese pork to create a fusion of cultures that rivals perfection.

Simultaneously light and rich, our Bahn Mi is stuffed with crisp vegetables and herbs to brighten heavy flavors.

You can find the full recipe here.

A Trip South of the Border: Duck Rillette Enchiladas

Our Duck Rillette has the perfect combination of flavors to complement bold Mexican seasonings.

Our savory Duck Rillette enchilada recipe takes about twenty minutes of prep time, and makes enough to serve your entire family.

Start by sautéing onion, garlic and green chilies until soft and fragrant. Add in oregano, cumin and chili powder. Once combined, gently stir in the Duck Rillette, seasoning to taste. Add two cups of enchilada sauce. Heat until hot and bubbly, then stir in 4 cups of mozzarella cheese.

Coat the bottom of a large baking pan with a thin layer of enchilada sauce. Divide the filling between 12 flour tortillas, and placing each into the dish as you go. Top with two more cups of enchilada sauce, and two cups of cheddar cheese.

Bake at 400˚ for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and enjoy!

A Trip to the Mediterranean: Pasta & Pâté

Pasta is a staple dish in any cook's arsenal, and for good reason: it's easy to make, versatile, relatively inexpensive and incredibly filling. A good pasta dish is also a wonderful comfort food, especially during the cold winter months.

Create a Mediterranean-inspired pasta dish this season by using our Eggplant and Goat Cheese Pâté as a sauce. The rich flavors of the terrine meld with the pasta to create creamy, mouthwatering goodness.

Simply choose your favorite pasta (bowtie pasta, fettuccine, and penne are all good choices), cook and stir in our Eggplant and Goat Cheese Terrine while the pasta is still hot.

Add fresh cherry tomatoes, spinach, and crumbled goat cheese to complete the dish. You can also add in proteins such as grilled chicken, shrimp, or sliced strip steak.
