Tasty terrines

I mentioned earlier that one of our supermarkets advertised some interesting terrines on special this week. It's that time of year when French traditional foods are offered everywhere for the holiday table. Not that they're unavailable year-round, just that they're much more varied and abundant this time of year. Our branch of the store didn't have every variety of terrine that was in the advertising circular, but I got one of the two that I wanted to try along with another less fancy, but no less tasty, one.

Top: chunks of goose meat and goose liver with mushrooms. Bottom: pork with peppercorns.

The first one is oie aux girolles (goose with girolle/chanterelle mushrooms). The second is a pork terrine with three kinds of peppercorns. Both are delicious and we're enjoying them with crusty bread and cornichons (little gherkins) as appetizers all week.


  1. You’re right, they look very appetizing. I wish I had some for my lunch. One can dream, can’t one?

  2. They look so good!

    I can comment! I can comment! Ongoing iPad problems have hopefully been resolved.

  3. You are so lucky to have terrines like these!

  4. The one with peppercorns looks particularly appealing. You and Ken keep mentioning cornichons, and when I was in Trader Joe's the other day, there they were, on the shelf, big as life. So I grabbed a jar. Now, if I could find a terrine that fine. :-)


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
