Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter
in a large skillet. Add the livers and
sprinkle them with the salt and pepper.

to the mixture to ignite it, and let the

to allow the flavors to mellow or for up
to 5 days.
Before serving, turn the pâté

the bowl and then peel off the plastic
wrap. Let the pâté sit at room temperature
for 30 minutes. Surround the pâté
