    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Trim the livers of any green bits (these will be bitter) or sinews.
    2. 2
      Heat a knob of the butter in a large frying pan and gently fry the livers with the garlic, shallot, thyme and Chinese five-spice.
    3. 3
      Fry until the livers are browned but still soft when pressed, and pink (but not raw) in the middle.
    4. 4
      Tip the livers into a food processor. Whizz to a paste, then whizz in the remaining butter and cream.
    5. 5
      Push the mixture through a sieve - this is boring, but worth it for a really smooth texture. Season well.
    6. 6
      Divide the mixture between 6 small china or glass ramekins and smooth the surface.
    7. 7
      Melt the final 2oz butter in a pan and let the milk solids settle to the bottom.
    8. 8
      Put a sprig of thyme on top of each ramekin and pour a little butter over each. Chill to set.
    9. 9
      To serve, bring the parfaits up to room temperature and eat with toasted brioche buns.
