My most favorite meal for special ocassions which I have made numerous times with good results. Impressive and really very easy. I usually serve with Pommes Anna, a good green salad and some decadent chocolate dessert. Pastry covered filets may be prepared up to two days in advance and stored covered in the refrigerator, or frozen before baking for up to one month. I have also made and subbed mushroom pate for the liver pate with good results. From Flavors, the San Antonio Junior League cookbook, credited to Mrs. Earl Hobbs Chumney, Jr. (Barbara Sue Christian). Time to make does not include chill time.
