The Terrines of Summer
In my mind, summer has to be the best time ever for terrines. I first got into terrine making because I realized that they are perfect for parties. You prepare them well in advance, then when the time comes, a really impressive, delicious and simple first course is taken care of already. All you have to do is slice and present it. I have put a lot of thought over the years into how to get not only the most flavorful but the prettiest terrines I could, and often found myself planning terrines even when I didn't have any parties to get ready for. I realized that during the hot days of summer, a nice slice of an informal picnic kind of terrine makes a neat sandwich, or served over salad it just hits the spot. So shall we venture into some of my favorite recipes for terrines? There are so many kinds and so many to choose from. I am trying to think where to begin.
