Done well, the beginning of a meal is often more memorable than the finish, a delightful first taste that whets the appetite and hints at greater things to come. This week, we are celebrating the art of the appetizer with a bountiful spread in the French country style: Savory chicken liver pâté, crunchy cornichon pickles, whole grain herb mustard, fresh fig compote and more. Paired with an artisan baguette and crisp Prosecco, this beautiful first course is satisfying enough to last all evening long!
