Feeling bogged down by cold weather blues? Then it may be time to head to the kitchen.
When there’s a chill in the air, nothing beats a hearty, comfort meal. Which leads us to ask: What’s more hearty or comforting than pâté? The answer: nothing. Plus, if you’re stuck inside all day— whether due to frigid temperatures or heavy snowfall— you might as well eat some damn good food.
So, without further ado, here are our top three pâté picks for a winter night in.
Offering a savory experience that’s hearty but not overpowering, a bite of Grand Marnier pâté will leave your palate with lingering flavors of cognac and fresh orange. In other words, it’s as comforting as a warm blanket.
For a light and quick winter snack, we suggest cubing Grand Marnier pâté and spearing it on a toothpick as you binge-watch your favorite TV show. Craving something a bit heavier? Pick your favorite crusty French bread and add lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles for an effortless sandwich.
Pro tip: Try Grand Marnier with a medium bodied red wine, such as Merlot. Trust us— you won’t regret it.
Full-flavored and easy to spread, Truffle Mousse pâté boasts a delightful mixture of rich flavors and creamy, delicate textures— perfect for cozying up on the couch.
For pairing, enjoy by spreading over a simple baguette or a toasted cracker. Watching your figure? Don’t fret: Truffle Mousse pâté also pairs wonderfully with salads, creating an instantly light and satisfying meal.
If you’re looking for a buzz, opt for a glass of Rosé or Chardonnay which will bring out the earthy tones of the truffle and the best of the wild mushroom flavor.
Vegans, rejoice! Tomato Basil pâté is a totally meat-free option that’s low in fat and calories, clocking in at just 30 calories per serving.
For a quick and refreshing meal that channels Mediterranean cuisine, pair Tomato Basil with a green salad that incorporates balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. If you’re pining for some carbs (aren’t we all?), serve it with sliced whole grain breads and toppings of your choice for a delicious mini sandwich.
Other serving options include: flax crackers, raw pizza crusts, or dip for fresh veggies.
