  • 1 lb (454 g) ground pork
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) port wine
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) cognac
  • Brandy
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) herbes de Provence
  • 1 teaspoon (5 ml) fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml) salt
  • Pepper
  • 8 thin slices Bayonne ham
  • Prosciutto
  • Preparation
  • In a food processor, pulse the salt pork, chicken livers and chicken meat until it forms a slightly grainy purée.
  • In a bowl, combine the meat, spirits, herbs and spices. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Line a 23 x 13-cm (9 x 5-inch) loaf pan with 6 ham slices. Spoon the meat mixture into the pan. Cover with the remaining ham slices and press lightly. Cover with alum­inum foil. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Set the loaf pan in a baking dish. Pour boiling water into the dish until it reaches halfway up the side of the loaf pan. Bake until a thermometer inserted in the centre reads 74°C (165°F), about 1 1/2 hours. Allow the pâté to cool in the water. Remove from the water and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight. Serve chilled or at room temperature with slices of French-style country bread.
