What very very sad news. She was always brilliant at coming back with helpful solutions and clearly put her heart into the food she made for family and friends.

She will be greatly missed on this site.

As the search facility is not good on here, I thought I'd share Gerry's pate recipe with you all. It was delicious.

Hi Honey,

Just got back. I had to visit Waitrose to find out the weight of the chicken livers I'd used for the pate as I hadn't written it down for the recipe.

PATE:

800 grams organic chicken livers, plus 1 goose liver and heart and 2 pheasant livers and hearts (maybe total weight of 2lb)
2 shallots, chopped
2 oz shelled pistachios, finely ground and soaked in 2 tbls orange juice from 1 large orange
1 tsp coriander seed, finely ground
2 smashed cloves of garlic
Pinch each of dried (this time of year) sage, thyme, tarragon and parsley
1 tbls each port and brandy
1 tsp lemon juice
Pure or butter, forgot to write it down maybe 6 oz.

METHOD:

I'm sure you don't need method but chopped shallots and garlic first, fried gently, then the rest, then whiz.

I made yours 4 days before you came and it was better than the small one I made with what was left over, which we tried the next day.

I'd wanted a more pronounced orange flavour, but had no orange liquor. Next time I'll get one or maybe try orange zest.

Thank you for all the kind things you said. Will answer more in next email.

Love,
Gerry
