Twin-Egg Henaff French Pate Recipe

twin egg unagi henaff french pate
It's party time! I love making food for parties as it challenges my wacky ideas. Another batch of my students had just graduated & I would usually make something nice to treat them.

I had prepared twenty of these Twin-Egg Henaff French Pates for their big day, using Henaff Chicken Liver Pate with Port Wine as it's more economical. Hénaff is a century-old pate producer, & their pates are dear to many French gourmands & complimented for their quality & taste. So if you can't afford foie gras, this is a great alternative!

I was never an Unagi fan, a popular Japanese Grilled Eel. Never have I thought that Unagi could go hand-in-hand with Foie Gras, until my recent DBS Indulge Underground Supper Club At Mikuni, Fairmont.

At the supper event, hubby & I were introduced to Chef Moon's BBQ Eel & Foie Gras. That night, I actually finished my eel! I was thrilled with the combination & couldn't wait to DIY. Then came my graduation party; a perfect timing for me to re-create this appetizer, & it was a SUCCESS!

I spent the entire day mixing my own concoction with the support of my hubby, who kept giving me feedback until I hit the nail. He loved it & my students were really happy!
