Season of artichokes in Berlin. So I wento to the Turkish market, opened every Tuesday and Friday, and saw this huuuge artichockes. They reminded me of the ones we have in Perú.
So, of course I bought 4 of them and decided to prepare this delicious pâté for the weekend. Friday night with Franzis and Clovis (my roomates) we had 2 with some nice wine and Sunday we had more friends over and we had the rest as an appetizer before the delicious cebiche I prepared, because I had Peruvian lemons with me!! So, getting back to the pâté, gourmet and delicious. You will surprise anyone with it, believe me!!

This recipe is perfect for a special occasion with a guest/guests. Elegant and delicious.
- 250 gr. chicken liver.
- 1/2 chopped medium white onion
- 1 peeled and chopped small apple
- 1 tablespoon of gelatin
- 1 tablespoon of mustard
- 90 gr butter
- 1 white wine glass of cognac/port/brandy.
- salt and black pepper
- thin, crisp toast, to serve
- berry marmalade (optional), to taste
- Boil water with some salt and add the liver. Cook for aproximately 5 minutes.
- Melt the butter in a frying pan (some oil will prevent it from burning easily) and fry the onions until soft in medium heat.
- Add the apple, mustard, nutmeg, salt, black pepper and leave cooking until the onion and apples look the same.
- Add the liver and a soup spoon of its stock and leave it for a couple of minutes on low heat.
- Let it cool and purée in a food processor or blender with the gelatine (dissolved with some liver stock).
- Add the cognac.
- Try and season if necessary. A lot of black pepper would make this pâté a “black pepper pâté”, anothe variation could be adding different herbs as well.
- Transfer the pâté to individual pots or ramekins and let it chill until set.
- Serve with toast, berry mermelade and a good strong and mature wine that will tune in… I had a D.O Toro (Spain) excellent wine.Delicious!
