Les Trois Petits Cochons - Paté au Poivre Noir

Les Trois Petits Cochons  - Paté au Poivre Noir

 

One of the many benefits of retirement is that we can enjoy more happy hours without the worry of evening calls and appointments and can go out for early dinners to beat the crowds at our favorite restaurants.

For one of our happy hours at home we had Les Trois Petits Cochons (three little pigs) Paté au Poivre Noir, (pork and chicken liver paté with black peppercorns and topped with aspic), some Alouette brie cheese and a plate of toasted artisan baguettes. 

The wine was Black Box California chardonnay. Did I mention that life is good!
