Melt 110g of the butter in a pan over a medium heat, then add the onion and fry until softened, but not coloured.

Add the garlic and chicken livers and fry the livers until golden-brown all over and cooked through.

Add the brandy and the port and season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Place the liver mixture and the cream into a food processor and blend until smooth, season to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Transfer the pâté into a serving ramekin or small dish and allow to cool.

Melt the remaining butter in a clean pan, skim off the froth and pour the butter over the pâté.

Transfer to the fridge to chill, then serve from the ramekin when ready.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
