Mutton Liver Parfait

A silky and flavoursome alternative to duck liver parfait.

This recipe has kindly been provided by chef Tom Welch of Wild Garlic


  • 2 rashers streaky bacon, cut into 1cm pieces
  • 225g mutton liver, cut into 3 cm pieces
  • 25g butter
  • 1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1tsp tomato puree
  • 2tsp brandy or calvados
  • 50ml Holy Cow crème fraiche 
  • To garnish
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 10 rainbow peppercorns (optional)
  • 40g butter, melted

·        Heat the butter in a frying pan. Fry the bacon for 2-3 minutes over a medium/low heat until just cooked but not too brown.

·        Add the onion and garlic and continue to fry for 3-4 minutes, until the onion is just soft. Add the mutton liver and cook for 4-5 minutes, add the tomato purée and brandy, stir well and continue to cook for another 2 minutes over a medium/high heat to make sure the alcohol is burnt off.

·        Leave the liver to go cool, add the crème fraîche and transfer the mixture to a blender. Blitz until smooth and season to taste.

·        Spoon the mixture into ramekins, or a small serving dish. Smooth the pâté in the dish and pour over the melted butter. Garnish with the bay leaves and peppercorns. Allow to chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.

·        To make an extra smooth pâté push through a sieve before filling your serving dishes.
