Country Style Pork Terrine
Here is a small taste of French country side! Tasty, simple & I promise, easy to make too. Serve it with a slice of fresh pain de campagne from your local bakery, and a couple of gherkins, and enjoy!

500 g of pork fat
325 g of pancetta
30 streaky bacon rashers
1.5 kg of pork belly
600 g of chicken livers
18 slices of white bread soaked in milk
4 eggs
2 tbl spoons of marjoram
2 tbl spoons of thyme
1 nutmeg crushed
2 tea spoons of black peppercorns crushed
4 tbl spoons of maldron sea salt

Line two moulds with cling film, and then with the streaky bacon rashers. Mince all the meat (see above ingredients) and bread together. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Put the mixture into the moulds. Cover it with streaky bacon and cling film. Cook in a bain-marie in the oven at 150 C for 1hour 45 min/2 hours Use a thermometer and look for 67 C in the center. Let it cool completely before slicing.

Enjoy! P

Choose a supple red wine, soft. A wine too high in tannins is to avoid. Try a young Burgundy pinot noir or a Beaujolais and if you like your Bordeaux as much as I do, a young Côtes de Blaye. Bonne dégustation, Rebecca
