1
Finely chop the shallots and cook them gently in a knob of butter until soft. Remove from the heat and leave to cool
  • 5 shallots
  • 1 knob of butter
2
Finely dice the calves liver, cut the foie gras into 1cm cubes, and dice the streaky bacon. Put them all in a very large bowl then add the sausage meat, thyme, brandy, port, cooked shallots, and the green peppercorns and mix well
  • 500g of calf's livers
  • 400g of foie gras
  • 400g of streaky bacon
  • 500g of plain unflavoured sausagemeat
  • 1/2 tbsp of thyme leaves
  • 500ml of brandy
  • 100ml of port
  • 1 tbsp of green peppercorns
3
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 5. Use a slicer to cut the lardo into very thin strips and use them to line the terrine mould, arranging them so that the slices overlap slightly and come far enough up over the sides of the terrine to cover the surface once it is filled
  • 300g of lardo
4
Divide the meat mixture evenly among the terrines, then fold up the lardo strips to cover the surface. Cover the terrines with foil and place in a deep roasting tray. Add enough warm water to the roasting tin to come halfway up the sides of the terrines. Carefully transfer the lot to the oven and cook for 1 1/2 hours or until firm to the touch
5
Remove the terrines from the oven and leave to cool and set for at least one day before slicing. Serve with onion chutney, radishes, cornichons and a little fresh chervil
  • 1 jar of onion chutney
  • 1 radish
  • 1 cornichon
  • 1 bunch of fresh chervil
