Pâté and Breads at Nana Bakery
We felt kind of bad when Nana Jungle Bakery – those Saturday Pied Pipers who seduce us weekly with their baked perfume in Suan Pai Lom – picked lard as their hero ingredient this month. Sure they would ask for a repack, we were surprised when Chef Nicolas Delamarche and his wife and partner Rattikan seemed rather pleased with their ingredient.
The reason? What goes perfectly on a crusty and warm baguette? Pate!
“Pate is a classical European spread mixing up ground meat, liver and lard marinated with a variety of herbs and spices,” said Chef Nicolas, Rattikan adding that she has noticed that Thai people are becoming quite enamored of the spread in recent years. “So we would like to present our very own pate to you,” the pair chimed adorably in unison.
Nana Bakery’s pate uses equal amounts of chicken liver and lard, a surprisingly healthy option as it contains no transfat and less fatty acids than butter, adding salt, pepper, garlic and coriander. The mixture is then steamed and simply placed in the fridge to cool.
To serve you will need to slice Nana Bakery’s finest baguette, slather it with pate, perhaps take a bite or two of pickles, et bon apetit!
