This not only looks beautiful but is a very tasty terrine. You will get raves over it. Terrines are a fair amount of work but the end result is so professional. Once you have made one or two it becomes easier. Try Aspic for Pates & Terrines for the aspic recipe Slice the terrine in 1/2" slices and serve as a first course to an elegant dinner, as a side dish on a buffet or as an appetizer
