Liver Pate on toast is one of the best starters on this planet and Danish Liver Pâté – Leverpostej is one of the best. It is full of flavour with a lovely smooth texture curtesy of the heavy cream. When I saw this recipe and noticed anchovies, I had to try it. It is definitely best to leave the pate to cool on a wire rack for at least two hours. Lets face it any dish whose ingredients include Pork liver, pork fat and bacon is going to be amazing. To make it a truly Danish dish then serve it with Danish Rye Bread.
