Ingredients - Makes 1½kg pâté

1½kg Diced game
1tsp Salt
½tsp freshly ground black pepper
1tsp Allspice
1tsp Juniper Berries
2 clove Garlic
1 small glass Brandy
¼kg Onions
4tbsp Butter
1 Egg
2 Glasses White Wine
4tbsp Fresh Breadcrumbs
¼kg Thin-sliced Bacon


Mince or finely chop the diced game and put it in a large bowl with the brandy. Grind up the salt, spices, herbs and garlic and work the mixture well into the meat then leave it to marinate overnight.

On the next day, chop and gently fry the onion until soft in the butter. Add them to the marinated meat along with the egg (beaten), the wine and the breadcrumbs.

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line a pâté dish (similar to a bread tin but not metal) with the bacon leaving the end hanging over the edges to cover the top. Pack the meat mixture into the middle and fold over the bacon ends.

Cover with foil and put it in a roasting tray filled with water. Bake for 2-3 hours until the sides are pulled away from the pate dish and the juices run clear. Leave it to cool overnight with a weight on top. Eat within 3 days.
