It was great once i'd finished. there is too much water in the recipe. Great pate in the end but please half the water and add water until you get the right consistency. i.e. like porridge .... Check/compare the water content. Great taste and texture in the end. I was able to cut it and freeze. Great from frozen. Oh... I added a few chilli flakes and extra herbs and sunflower seeds. I'll Try currying it next time. - 19 Jun 2014
