As the third generation descendent of two French grandparents, my food choices were different from those of my peers. As a child I loved liver pate. No, we didn’t make it at home, with force-fed goose liver. The heritage cuisine downgraded over time and the stuff I was served came in a can. Salty, milder than liverwurst, but still tasty, it was one of my favorite lunch treats. Until the day I brought it to school between two slices of bread. Ew! Ugh! What is that? Kids at the lunch table thought it was disgusting. I stoutly defended it, but decided not to bring it again. Ham and turkey were the new “normal” cold cuts of choice. But my old passion returned once I started touring in France and got a taste of the real thing. Other Americans said Ew! Ugh! But moi? I savored every delicious bite. Liver Pate. Try it sometime. Bon Chance!
Do you have any taste of home treats that others just don’t get?
