I just wonder why pate in some restaurants can be so overpriced. I bought one packet of fresh chicken livers from NTUC Fairprice at under $2 and I could make an entire ramekin of pate that lasted me and my husband over a few days. We spread it over toast in the mornings and even used it in banh mi for dinner. So yummy. So affordable. And so easy to make. The reason why I prefer chicken livers over pork livers is that they do not have a strong stench like pork does and I do think they are much more richer and creamier too. Give it a try!
