  • 65 g goose fat
  • 400 g chicken livers trimmed and sinew removed
  • 1 clove garlic thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 8 black olives
  • 8 green olives
  • 1 anchovy
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp garlic oil
  • a pinch of salt


  • Heat 2 tablespoons of goose fat in a frying pan (skillet) over a medium heat. Add the prepared chicken livers. Cook the livers until they are browned all over.
  • Add the remaining goose fat and garlic to the pan along with the thyme. Cook for a minute or so with the chicken livers until tender and fragrant. The livers should be completely cooked throughout and lightly pink in the centre.
  • Allow to cool a little then transfer to a food processor. Add a pinch of salt and blend to a smooth pate. You do not need to add too much salt as the tapenade will provide this. Once blended, divide the pate between 4 individual 3-inch ramekins, or mini mason jars, pressing into an even layer. Set aside to cool while you prepare the topping.
  • Very finely chop the olives and anchovy. Add to a small mixing bowl. Add the lemon juice and garlic oil. Mix well to combine. Taste and add more lemon if desired.
  • Divide the tapenade evenly between the four ramekins/jars, covering the tops of the pate in an even layer. Cover/wrap well and transfer to the fridge. Allow the pate to stand at room temperature for a short while before serving. Serve with vegetable batons, or carb dodging Italian bread or flatbreads.
