“I got this recipe for a school mum, Sue Stibbard. She always liked to make things go further on her tight budget so she came up with this recipe for chicken liver pate with a twist; hard boiled eggs are added to the recipe. This gives the pate a lighter texture. People are surprised when I tell them that there are hard boiled eggs in the pate. This recipe makes a large batch and you will certainly get compliments for your skills in mastering chicken liver pate.”
