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 !!

If I had to sum up our trip in one word it would just have to be WOW! But of course it is impossible to describe the trip of a lifetime in just one word. The detail and care that Emilie put into planning our trip was AMAZING. Every place we stayed, every outing she planned, every person that she put us in contact was wonderful. My husband and I …

Anyone planning a trip to France, whether for the first time or for the twelfth (like me), will benefit from the fabulous itinerary that Emilie can craft for you. My husband and I just returned from 2 1/2 weeks in the Medoc and the Loire Valley that Emilie planned for us: top-notch historic B&Bs with character, charming friendly hosts and sumptuous …

We have just returned from a road trip around France and with Emilie's help, we had one of the best trips we've ever had. We travel extensively and I normally do my own research and bookings because we don't like using formal , organised tours and we were looking for advice on self driving holidays in France. Emilie's attention to detail is …

It was the best tour ever! Laura did an amazing job to deliver painless and excellent planning and arrangements. Everything promised was delivered and included much more than would normally be seen without ‘INSIDR’ tips. It is obvious that Emilie and Laura have put a lot of thought and effort into the tours they offer. We definitely recommend …

Staying in B&B’s is a great way to see the country and meet the people who live there in their normal environment. And, “France Just for You” provides an excellent way to have this experience. Emilie’s knowledge and detailed planning made the trip exciting and enjoyable! We will definitely seek her out for our next trip to France.

I was going to plan a trip for my daughter and I and quickly got overwhelmed. We didn't want to go on those tours that have you going for morning until night. We wanted to be able to take our time and enjoy our trip. That's when I found Emiliee. We wanted to stay for 3weeks and really experience France, and Emiliee did just that. Her guide books …
