Pork Liver Parfait with Nut Crunch

    2 hours Cook time 30 minutes Prep time 8 à 10 servings


    Maple nut crunch ingredients

    Herb butter ingredients


    1. Using a spatula, combine butter and herbs in a bowl. Season and set aside.
    2. Place liver in a bowl in the sink and let cold water run over it for about 10 minutes to flush out impurities. Cut into large pieces.
    3. In a pot, bring port and whisky to a boil. Add garlic, bay leaf, thyme and shallot, and reduce over low heat until mixture has thickened to a syrupy texture. Strain with a sieve and set aside.
    4. In a bowl, combine liver pieces, eggs, butter and port-whisky mixture. Cover and let stand for 1 hour at room temperature.
    5. Preheat the oven to 155 °C (310 °F).
    6. Use a food processor to puree liver mixture until smooth. Press liver mixture through a strainer with a spatula to remove as much liquid as possible.
    7. Line a lightly moistened terrine mould with plastic wrap.
    8. Pour liver puree into the mould, gently fold plastic wrap over puree and cover. Place mould into a baking dish and fill the dish three-quarters full with water.Bake for 1 hour 30 minutes. Remove from oven and refrigerate until completely cooled.
    9. Unmould terrine, using a chef’s knife to trim sides so they are smooth.
    10. Flip terrine over onto a piece of plastic wrap. Using a spatula, coat all sides with herb butter. Wrap parfait with plastic wrap and refrigerate until butter sets.
    11. When ready to serve, remove plastic wrap. Slice with a hot knife. Serve on croutons with nut crunch.
