fussy eater turned foodie

Picky Party Pâté Platter

Contrary to my fussier days when I would not eat anything, I now am the sort of person who loves to pick at absolutely everything. Why eat one type of food when you can eat ten?! This style of eating always works great when entertaining and usually requires very little actual cooking. So when I receive a batch of Castle Maclellan Pate’s* to try, I thought this would be a great time to invite the parents to dinner. I admit, I have never really been much of a pate person and I was a bit apprehensive about trying these. This may be because I have never really been exposed to it (and if you would have said ‘chicken liver’ to 10 year old me I probably would have winced and pulled my face but now I have discovered how delicious it can be!). The Scottish heather honey added a full bodied flavour to the pate but in my opinion the vegetarian oven roasted mushroom option was even tastier!
