  • Summary

    This smooth pâté can be set up in small jars for a more festive presentation up to 2 days ahead. A simple wine jelly topping—optional, of course— serves as both a conversation starter and a tart-sweet counterpoint to the rich mousse.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound chicken livers, cleaned
    • 4 cups milk, divided
    • 2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, divided
    • 3 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
    • 3 sprigs thyme
    • 2 tablespoons Calvados (apple brandy)
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt plus more
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 3/4 cup sweet (Auslese) Riesling
    • Fresh thyme sprigs or leaves (optional)
    • 16 1/4"-thick slices white sandwich bread, each cut into 4 triangles
