Preheat the oven to 200 C
Melt the butter in a large pan over low heat. Put the onion and cook it until it becomes transparent. Don't burn it.
Add the liver, increase the heat and brown it a little on the surface. Inside it remains undone.
Take the pan off the heat, put the brandy and flambe it. Wait until the flame passes, tilting the pan in all directions. If you use Alexandrion brandy, as I did, the flame will be very small. I better use something stronger.
Put the pork in a food processor (or with a mincer), then the onion mixture and mix a little. It doesn't need to come out like a paste, bigger pieces can remain.
Pour into a large bowl and mix in eggs, sour cream, spices. Match salt and pepper. Put the thyme branches. It can be put and cut into small pieces, but my husband doesn't like it, so I put it whole so he can take it out easier. Homogenize well.
Wallpaper the shape of the cake with slices of bacon. Pour the liver composition inside and smooth it. Cover everything with aluminum foil.
Now we take a water bath. Put the cake form in a deeper tray, but not very large. Bring water to a boil. Fill the tray with water so that it is half the height of the cake tin. Put everything in the oven, being careful not to pour boiled water. MARE GRIJA
Bake for 2 hours. Remove the foil and bake for another 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before removing the pate from the pan. It is eaten cold.
In fact, what is terrine, what is pate?
Pate, as we know it, is a paste of liver (chicken, goose, duck or even beef or pork), most often combined with meat and fat (pork, duck or goose, depending meat), seasoned and flavored, then cooked in a steam bath or oven.
Maybe one of the most famous meat pies is the famous pâté de foie gras. Under French law, duck or goose liver, most often forcibly fattened, can be called foie gras, a process called gavage, which aims to increase the volume of that bird's liver. The simplest foie gras pâté recipe is based on the oversized liver, seasoned with salt, pepper, Sauternes or Armagnac. Put everything in a special bowl, usually made of terracotta, and cook in a bain-marie, at low temperature, for about half an hour, depending on the quantity. Basically, the liver melts easily and the fat in it will envelop the preparation, so it will be sealed and safe longer. Leave to cool for at least a day, but when serving, remove at least a quarter of an hour before.
A common and well-known recipe in our country is chicken liver pate, with butter, caramelized onions and spices.
Terinese they are also made of meat, but this time we are not talking about the liver, but about different types of meat, with different textures. It all starts with raw meat, cut, sliced or coarsely mixed, combined with caramelized onions and other vegetables and cooked in bain-marie, sealed with fat or grape or berry jelly. We could say that it looks very much like our lamb liver, but think that it can be made in a wide variety of meats and combinations. The ones made from game - pheasant, deer rabbit or deer are very precious. The spices used are extremely varied. For example, in pheasant terrine we find pistachios, port wine and nutmeg, while in rabbits there is no shortage of cognac and candied fruits are also used.
To understand how attached the French are to their traditional products, even to something as mundane as a pate or a terrine, in 2013, Breton pate joined the very short list of French meat specialties recognized as Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) ). To be allowed to bear this name, it must be made in one of the historical departments of Brittany (Côtes-d'Armor, Finistère, Ille-et-Vilaine, Loire-Atlantique and Morbihan). One of the original characteristics of the Breton pate is the so-called "hash grain", the coarse cut, which gives it that rustic character.
Not only the French have these meat dishes. The Germans call them Leberkäse, which in our country sometimes appears under the name of curd. Even cozonac, given the way it is cooked. If French terrines are usually eaten cold, Leberkäse can be eaten and immediately removed from the oven. But it is usually a sausage, served in buns, with mustard and pickles.
If you are wondering what was the purpose of producing these dishes, it is not very difficult to guess. It was a way of preserving meat, just as we have meat and sausages for garnish, or smoked. The salamis and hams appeared in the same idea, more or less salted and dried in drafts.
With the advent of modern preservation in the early nineteenth century, things became much simpler. Conservation was needed at the time to feed the armies, and Napoleon was in dire need of such a method, so he launched a competition. Thanks to him, we now have modern cans. But better and better are a pate or a homemade terrine!
Prepare the terrine
First we prepare the meat. We cut the chicken breast into 1.5 cm thick and 5-6 cm long strips. Put the meat in a bowl then add: 1 clove grated garlic, pepper, oil, also grated ginger, soy sauce, and if necessary a little salt. Mix well and leave for 1 hour in the cold.
Meanwhile, prepare the mushrooms. We cut them into slices. Put a little oil in a pan, then finely chopped onion. Leave for 2 minutes, add the mushrooms. Let them simmer until all the juice left by them evaporates. Add salt, pepper, grated garlic and fresh parsley. Leave it on the fire for another minute, then put the mixture aside.
For the preparation of this terrine we need a cake form, size 25/10 cm. First we put in the form of aluminum foil, to exceed the edges by 10 cm, then we put food foil, as well as size. We put the slices of bacon in shape, see photo.
Then follows a layer of chicken breast, alternating with one of mushrooms, continue until we finish the ingredients. We hydrate the gelatin in 50 ml of cold water. In the pan where I hardened the mushrooms I put 75 ml of water and put it on the fire. When it started to boil I put it aside. I added gelatin and poured it carefully over the terrine. With a spoon I lightly pressed the terrine. Then I covered it with the ends of the bacon slices.
I closed everything as well as I could with the food foil, then with the aluminum foil. Be careful that everything is well covered and without cracks. The bowl with the terrine is placed in another tray. Fill with water up to half the shape.
Put everything in the preheated oven at 160 degrees for 1 hour and a half. After the time has passed, we take it out of the oven, out of the water, and put a weight on it. I used a 1 l bottle of water.
After it has cooled, put it in the fridge overnight. On the 2nd day, slice it with a sharp knife. Serve cold, with pickles. Enjoy!

As I had the urge to cook this weekend, I tried pork lard wrapped in bacon, inspired by a recipe from a cookbook of mine. The terrine is a meat cake made of cut or ground meat, baked in the oven and served at room temperature. The name "terrine" comes from the rectangular ceramic pot in which the meat cake is cooked. This time I tried a simple recipe, but I will definitely try other variations that contain liver or nuts, etc. I hope you enjoy!
1 kg of minced pork
slices of bacon (I put about 16)
4 cloves garlic
2 slices of bread
In a bowl, mix the minced meat with the chopped onion, crushed garlic, eggs, breadcrumbs, chopped greens and spices and mix well, forming a paste similar to that for meatballs.
In a small rectangular tray, place slices of bacon on the walls of the form, leaving a piece of about 6 cm on each side to hang, as below:
Place the meat paste over the bacon, press it with a spoon and level it nicely.
After leveling the meat nicely, cover with the hanging bacon strips and make sure it is well covered (if necessary, put some more bacon on top)
Cover the cake tin with foil and place it in a larger tray that you fill with hot water that reaches half the shape of the cake and put in the preheated oven at 170 degrees (be careful not to burn with hot water ) and let it sit for 1 hour and 45 minutes in a bain marie.
This way the terrine will not brown. If you want it to brown a little on top, you can leave it for 5 minutes without foil on the grill position. The terrine is ready when you put a toothpick in the center of the cake and the juices that come out are clear. When it is ready, carefully remove the form from the tray and drain all the juice that has formed and let it cool a little.
Cover the tray again with foil and place some weights on top to press the terrine. (It's good if you have another similar shape of cake in which to put some cans, or other weights)
Let it cool and then put it in the fridge with the can tray, to press very well. It is preferable for the tray to stay in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
When we take it out of the fridge, we turn it over on a plate and cut it into slices.
Serve with salad of vegetables, or with various sauces according to preferences. It goes perfectly for breakfast or a light dinner. Bon appetit!
