Article Excerpt:

You know those recipes that knock around in the back of your mind, tormenting and tempting you, but you just never quite get around to tackling them?  I have many.  Olive oil-packed homemade canned tuna.  Potato-free, gluten-free gnocchi.  Really good chocolate cake.  Chicken liver paté.

Yes.  You read that correctly. Chicken liver paté.

I have been dreaming of making my own chicken liver paté for about about two years. I got hooked on paté in France in 2007.  In 2008 I ate amazing paté at a fancy holiday party at my manager's house and almost died from pleasure.  I haven't had liver paté since; store-bought liver paté just has too many things I can't eat.  I've looked up recipes, I've sourced out organic chicken livers at my local co-op, and I've scribbled down ideas. But I just haven't done the deed.

This week the time finally time. Upon seeing this recipe for Tuscan Chicken Liver Paté on Food 52, I knew I had to make it. Anything that includes garlic, onions, anchovies, and capers sounds good to me.  It sounded simple to make and easy to adapt to my needs.  I was a woman on a mission.
