“This dish is all about the pâté, which is a smooth, rich and flavoursome product new to the range this Christmas. It’s a brilliant time-saver in the kitchen, guaranteeing you consistent quality and portion control. Combined with the crunch from the hazelnuts and the sweet onion marmalade, this is a classic Christmas starter.” David Carr, Culinary Development Chef
