    I was just served this wonderful "mock" pate at a christmas party, and really was impressed. I would serve this to anyone and know it will be enjoyed. The texture, seasoning and color all suggest a true pate.  -  15 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made this pate for my birthday party. My boyfriend was really sceptical when he heard the ingredients (very plain), but he was quite pleased when he tried it. It is really delitious. I used it as a dip and it was a hit. Congratulations to Sandy for submitting great recipe.  -  27 Jun 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This pate was enjoyed by all at a dinner party that my sister gave. It is so delicious. The texture and taste is beyond incredible. I can't wait to make it for my guests someday. I also plan on using it as a filling for our work lunches. Thank you!!!!!!!  -  30 Apr 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
