What is pâté?
- Pate is an hors d’oeuvre made of seasoned ground meat, poultry, seafood, or vegetables, mixed with fat and other base ingredients, such as herbs, spices or alcohol.
- Pate can have a smooth or coarse texture.
- Pate is often served baked in a crust (en croute) or molded in a terrine.
- Some Pates are finished with a garnish for flavoring such as chopped nuts. Pate may be served molded or unmolded, hot or cold, but tends to develop its best flavor after being chilled.
She-Oak Pâté Knife
- The She-Oak Pâté Knife is ergonomically designed to fit snugly in the hand, allowing a firm grip of the fingers around the handle and though designated as a pate knife it can of course be used for butter, soft cheeses, dips and accompaniments to a cheese board such as quince paste or chutney.
- The West Australian She-Oak is a highly decorative timber with its definite patterning and colour, shown to good effect in the organic shapes of the handle.
- The blade is made from the best quality Sheffield steel and the She-Oak Pate Knife makes a great duo on a cheese plate when paired with the She-Oak Cheese Knife.
