Defrost the pâté and glaze with a little olive oil to prevent oxidisation.
Toast, skin and chop the hazelnuts.
Mix the dijon, honey, lemon juice and vinegar well, then slowly add the olive oil.
Mix 20g of the hazelnuts and chopped chives into the dressing, season well, then drizzle over the picked and rinsed pea tendrils and frisse endive.
Cook the bacon until crispy between 2 baking sheets, then break into crispy bacon shards.
Slice the sourdough baguette, put on tray and splash with olive oil and bake until crispy and then season.
Plate up the pâté with the sourdough croute, the dressed salad, a quenelle of onion marmalade, and top with the remaining toasted hazelnuts and bacon shards.
“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
