"From the Candle 79 Cookbook: This versatile and rich-tasting pate is an all-time favorite appetizer at Candle 79 in New York City. It's lovely to serve at a party with cocktails or a crisp, organic white wine. Spoon it onto crostini made with your favorite bread or onto crackers, or serve it alongside a crudite platter."

"I tried this again today, this time with the portabellas. It is more flavorful with the portabellas than with the shiitake and button mushrooms I tried last time. I didn't have 1/2 lb spinach, I used 5 1/2 ounces. Last time the pate was too runny, so I drained the mushrooms after sautéing them. It's still not as solid of a texture as I would like, it's more like a dip than a pate. I want a more solid mushroom pate with more flavor, so I'll keep looking. I won't be making this again."
"Great dip for an aperitif next to the fire place. Prepared it for Thanksgiving with my future parents in law! They liked it.... Definitely a 5 stars..."
