Pâté of the Month:
Chicken Liver Mousse

This mousse style pâté features a velvety chicken texture and traditional New York deli style flavor. Made with chicken liver and a dash of sherry, its refined taste and texture spreads like butter.

Mousse is a French term that means "froth" or "foam" and the Chicken Liver Mousse paté is a rich yet delicate treat that is also spreadable . It can be enjoyed alone on bread and with simple vegetable accompaniments. Try serving it on a warm bagel with sliced cornichons – the crisp and savory zest of the cornichons makes a great pair with the smooth and flavorful chicken texture.

Chicken Liver Mousse can also be used to make sinfully delicious recipes - like Beef Wellington! This famous dish features a tender beef fillet covered with paté and a mixture of sautéed mushrooms, shallots, onions and herbs. The covered beef is wrapped in pastry and baked to a golden brown.

Beef Wellington is a rich, satisfying entree often featured on the menus of high-end restaurants. But the dish is surprisingly easy to make at home, especially with Alexian Pâté and premade puff pastry dough.
