About Our Gourmet Pate

While we usually relate pate with duck or goose livers, the truth is pates can be created with pretty much anything – fish, pork, even just vegetables. Our selection of French-style pates include smooth terrines, chunky duck rillettes, and velvety smooth mousses. They’re made with natural, high-quality ingredients, following the traditional techniques of French chefs.

How To Eat Pate

Savor our French-style pates in many different ways! We love them in the simplest of manners, like over a chunky fresh baguette, or perhaps served in fancy, old-school style over toast points. With pate, you usually want to slice instead of spread, so use a warmed knife – this helps you cut into it more easily and more tidily. Add a caper, perhaps a briny cornichon, maybe drizzled with a sweet preserve or fruit jam, a strong mustard from Dijon.

Give Pate de Campagne a try, a country-style pate that’s usually chunkier, with larger pieces. Or discover Rillettes, an intense version of pate, made by cooking the pork slowly, very slowly, with a good amount of spices – perfect to serve over crackers for impromptu entertaining.

If you’re looking for the most luxurious form of pate, a pate de foie gras is exactly what you’re looking for, especially if you pick one of our pates with truffles, studded with pieces of fresh black French truffles – sublime! Whether smooth, velvety, coarse, chunky, mild or intense, at Gourmet Food Store we’ve got a pate that’s perfect for you. They’re ideal for easy, luxurious entertaining, and they make excellent gourmet gifts and additions to a French food gift basket.

What is Pate de Foie Gras

Pate definition & meaning – pate de foie gras (pronounced paht-duh-fwah-grah) is a delicacy made from the liver of a duck or goose that has been specially fattened, then seasoned and cooked, while "foie gras" is a French term that translates to "fat liver." The liver used is typically seasoned with herbs, spices, and sometimes spirits like Brandy or Armagnac to enhance its flavor. You can have any type of meat pates, but only duck or goose can be used for pate de foie gras.

Pate Prices & Costs

The price can vary depending on several factors, such as the quality of the liver used, the production method, and the brand. In general, foie gras is considered a high-end delicacy and can be quite expensive. You’ll find pate for sale at prices going over hundreds of dollars for a small jar or tin – but the delicious content makes it all worth it! In France, you have entire pate stores, so the variety of pricing there is even wider.

If you’re looking around asking yourself where to buy pate, know that you can order pate online at Gourmet Food Store with the confidence that we source from the best and most reputable suppliers and vendors in the world. We pride ourselves in our French style pate selection, like our pate de campagne or our luxurious pate de foie gras aux truffes (truffled pate!), and our expert pate delivery. We also have incredible recipes and pate de foie gras serving suggestions on our site.

A:Pate can be made with any type of liver or meat, like duck or goose, but also beef or venison, even seafood. However, foie gras can be made only with the liver of duck or goose.
