Gary Rhodes Xmas pate- help please

  • peppermintpattie on Sunday, 4th December 2011

    Hi all,
    I'd love some help. There was a Gary Rhodes Christmas programme on back in about 2003 (possibly repeated a few years ago) where he cooked a turkey crown and pate to accompany. The pate was cooked in a round cake tin and wrapped in streaky bacon.... I made it and it was sensational.

    I'd like to make it this year but of course cannot find the recipe.... Having searched on the web, there seems to be a lot of (old and) conflicting info about which book it was published in. I'll happily track down a 2nd hand copy- can anyone confirm the book?

    I'd be most grateful for your help!!
    Thx!! PP

    According to the posts on this forum, the recipe is in "The Complete Cookery Year" - your library may have a copy, or charity shops?

    Oh thanks Alison - much appreciated... I see amazon have some 2nd hand so I'm going to try that.

    Thanks again!

    Hi PP,

    I really hope it's the right book.

    I had my doubts when you mentioned you'd seen a lot of old & conflicting info on the internet, as the posters on that forum got quite confused!

    Good luck!

    GCP thank you very much! This recipe looks very very similar - the only differences I can remember - the "festive" version is baked in a round springform tin and has boozy soaked raisins in it.
    That said, this is a very very similar recipe (From what I can remember...it is getting on for 10 years ago) and a great back-up - thank you!

    I've bought the book 2nd hand on amazon so I'm hoping I'll get the recipe shortly. There was a further complication as there are hardback & paperback versions with 3 years difference in publication date...so who knowssmiley - smiley

    But I've got a book on it's way, hopefull in time to still get my meat order in and I've now got a great backup recipe.

    thanks again!
