As much as I love cooking I don't often get round to writing up recipes to share... couple of years of life in France and I'm extending my repertoire to things such as Pâté de tête. A cold terrine made from.. well basically a boiled up pigs head. It was a first time for me after long being a fan of shop-bought terrines.. but I added my own twists to it with some subtle flavourings of dill head, cloves, bay and plenty of black pepper

I've written up the whole process, from brining and prepping the head, making the terrine and setting with a reduction of the cooking liquor. For completeness sake I've not omitted anything and there are some slightly icky photos. But.. even if you're not up to tackling a piggy head then do give it a whirl should you be passing by a charcuterie next time you're in France. It's excellent
