  1. Melt 25 ml butter in a frying pan and sauté liver, mushrooms and onion for 5 minutes

  2. Add remaining ingredients (except rest of butter) and simmer, covered, until liver and mushrooms are just tender

  3. Remove from stove, allow mixture to cool slightly, then place in a blender or food processor with remaining butter and blend until smooth

  4. Pack pâté tightly in an earthenware crock and chill for at least 3 hours before use.
