Goodmorning, dear friends! We asked you yesterday to guess what this appetizer is made of on our facebook page and instagram. I admit that it is not appealing to the eye and looks like we have planted sage in a small pot with soil but the truth is that it is a really tasteful pate! It is made of mushrooms and brazilian nuts! A healthy and special appetizer that is a crowd pleaser!
Shooting this recipe was not an easy thing, it happened under funny circumstances! You see we are renovating our house and the day I made this I had the plumber in the house changing pipes in the bathroom…His son asked me politely while I was shooting: «Photography is your hobby, right?» Haha! No, foodblogging is my hobby, dear! Anyway, there is a lot of work that has to be done and it is hard to develop a recipe, cook it and shoot it under these peculiar circumastances. I have all kinds of technicians in the house every day, so it is tough…But nevertheless I will do my best cause I love foodblogging!
Take care and have a lovely week everyone!
