Pate Rustique is a classic, country style pate in the tradition of French grandmother's classic recipes. Made of pork and pork liver, this pate is seasoned with mushrooms, brandy, and spices. Enjoy this pate with a full-bodied red wine, robust and fruity with minimal influence of oak or a light to medium-bodied red wine with a hint of earthy aromas balanced by a fruit-forward bouquet. Les Trois Petits Cochons started in 1975 as a small charcuterie in the heart of New York's Greenwich Village, where founders Alain Sinturel and Jean Pierre Pradié cooked and offered pâtés and other French specialties to the neighborhood gourmets. They soon received rave reviews by such notables as Craig Clairborne, Mimi Sheraton, James Beard, and others. Once word got out, they began making pâtés for other restaurants around Manhattan. By 1990, demand forced them to expand their operation. Today, they make their pâtés in their kitchen, House of Bricks, located in Wilkes Barre, PA. Les Trois Petits Cochons is recognized for its excellence as a leader in the specialty food business and industry it helped to create. They use all-natural, high quality ingredients, and craft small, handmade batches.
