What is pâté and what’s the difference between Pâtés, Mousses and Terrines?

​Pâté (pronounced Pa-TAY): French food made from meats, vegetables or seafood combined with spices, wines or liquor and other ingredients such as truffles, pistachios or wild mushrooms.

  • Pâté: Coarse texture, Sliceable
  • Mousse: Smooth, Creamy, Spreadable
  • Terrine: Light, Spreadable, Non-meat

How long can I keep the pâté in my fridge once open?

​7 to 10 days. Wrap it tight with plastic wrap and keep refrigerated.

How do you unmold the pâté?

Unmold Pate
  1. Loosen pâté from mold by firmly pulling the lengthwise sides of the container away from the pâté.
  2. Invert mold. Firmly tap one end of the mold against a table top. Repeat until pâté slides out of mold.
  3. Enjoy!
