    I like chicken pate and I have made it many times on special occasions. I liked this recipe too, but my problem was not having a food processor or blender! I thought I’d cooked the liver sufficiently until I had to press it through the sieve.. it was still too bloody, and I’d completely gone off it by then!! Our dog enjoyed it over the next 2 days as a small meal. So there’s nothing wrong with the recipe.. it was just my own squeamish sensitivities!
