Paté, your new best friend?

I love my label. I must thank poster dude.

Thursday Night 8 PM:

I have to cook ten pounds of paté by Saturday, and yet here I am watching the U.S. Open Tennis match.

Well, maybe a bunch of you people out there think that’s no problem. But hell, that is a lot of frickin’ paté.  I have a booth at the inaugural Greenpoint Food Market this Saturday.  I am excited to finally have an outlet where I can sell it. By the way, this not the same pate I told you about in Pat E Kiernan.

I am making Chicken Liver Terrines – let me emphasize that this does not taste like the ubiquitous chicken liver mousse found in almost every restaurant in New York. I think the state of chicken liver in the city has reached new lows. They all taste like mud. I am a traditionalist charcuterie guy. My paté is creamy, smooth, assertively flavored, it is the SHIT.



My vegetarian girlfriend has insisted that I share the news that came out several months ago linking paté and dog food. If that is true, it must have been some fucking tasty dog food. My mom feeds her dog paté which drives me nuts. She will feed some of my paté to the dog and say, “Coco is your biggest fan!” Does she think I am cooking for dogs??

    i was just recently introduced to your story. a couple buddies of mine were at a bbq in astoria queens a few months ago, where you impressed them with a variety of artisan sausages.
    i tried to check out the greenpoint food market for any listings of you coming up but hadn’t any luck.
    please let me know when and where your next public appearance may be… i’d very much like to check out your products.

    fellow meat enthusiast,
