A gourmet gift

We were visited by our neighbour during the week, a Frenchman, who brought us a gift, homemade pate. It came in a smart glass jar. Only the day before we had been talking about pate and how we (I) should make our own, it's not hard and the taste and quality is above anything sold in shops. So here we were the next day taking possession of a fine pot of pork pate.

To go with the pate, I made a foccacia loaf. I made the dough in the bread maker, then baked it with rosemary and sea salt on top.

The pate was delicious. It had quite a lot of green peppercorns which gave it a nice flavour.
Thank you neighbour!
