This is a recipe that is passed from generations to generations in Emilie's family. Pauline, our 6-month-daugther already learns how to make good pate.

The pork paté is the best of all, the tastiest and the easier to prepare (compared to other types of meats that are more difficult to bone.

To make about 15 preserving jars, like on the picture, you’ll need about 5 kilos of meat (11lb).

-       3 kilos (7lbs)  of mixed pork meat: pork belly and throat (greasy)

-       2 kilos (4lbs) of pork/poultry liver

-       2 onions, 1 shallot, 2 garlic cloves, a lot of parsley

-       1 small glass of brandy, 1 small glass of very strong coffee (expresso)

-       5 eggs

-       2 tablespoon of pepper per kilo of meat (so 10 tablespoon in this case). You can mix grey pepper and 5 bays.

-       15 grams of salt per kilo of meat (so 75 grams of salt) – be careful to be very precise with the salt.

-       Add thyme and a laurel leaf on top of the mixture in the preserving jar before closing it.

Then, you need strong arms and an electric meat mincer. You cut all the meat in pieces and put them in the mincer. You mix all of the above and put them in preserving jars. Pass them on the sterilizer for 3 hours.

The pate are even better if you wait for few month before eating them….Enjoy !!

We could not be happier. When we first received the guide book and brochures, we thought we would not need them, but they were invaluable! Our first stay with Florence and Phil was especially memorable but really we cannot think of a highlight because it was all wonderful. We will certainly recommend your company to anyone we know travelling to …

We have just return from an amazing holiday arranged by France Just for You - visiting Paris, Vimy Ridge, Normandy (D-Day Beaches) and Mont Saint Michel. Emilie listened to what our wishes were and arranged everything in great detail. The accommodations (hotels and bed and breakfasts) all had so much charm and character - the hosts were very …

There are not enough superlatives, or kind words, to describe the level of service Emilie, with France Just for You, provided us from the moment we contacted her, throughout our trip, and even her thoughtful emails upon our return. We contacted Emilie with a list of all the places we wished to go, the things we hoped to do, and our budget. We …

My wife and I completed a 3 week driving trip out of Bordeaux which was organized by France Just for You. The Bed and Breakfast accommodations were superb, the personalized guidebook comprehensive and well-organized, and the booked activities were high quality. Having the rental car booked for us was a major advantage (Don’t drive in France without …

Emilie and Guillaume: I want to send you this special thank you for making this trip truly spectacular! Our time in France was memorable precisely because of the people we've met, and the unique experiences we've had. We owe that all to you. There's no way that we ever would have been able to find the bed and breakfasts that you booked for us. And …

In May we travelled to France for our second trip with Emilie and France Just For You, and it was just as wonderful as our first adventure! Emilie's planning is so thorough and detailed that not a thing is left to chance. The B and B's were lovely and the hosts delightful; the routes were carefully planned to give us a complete taste of Southern …
