Beef Liver Pate
Source of Recipe
Years ago I served a pate that I think was from a Scandinavian meal at Gourmet CLub. It was origianlly made with ground suet and baked in oven. I searched for 2 years and never found the original recipe but think I have nailed it. I used the amount of wine and fat found in other recipes. This is beautiful to serve on a smorgasbord table with a wide variety of other flavors such as great blue cheese on cocktail rye.
