I've always thought mushroom risotto was the Platonic ideal Red Burg pairing. Simple roast chicken great too.

Along the mushroom line, I’ve made a John Ash’s Mushroom Pâté many times and it pairs very well with aged burgundy. The recipe calls for a little curry powder and lemon zest. It’s not overpowering at all, but you can always adjust the seasoning.

I can’t disagree with gougeres. Or a salmon rillette.

Cheers,

I like both Ray's and Christine's suggestions!

Robert - good to see you on the board! How have you been?

Anyway, agree with both.
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

For those looking for chicken liver mousse, the one at Staplehouse in Atlanta is transcendent: https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/chick ... oney-gelee. I haven’t made it so I can’t vouch for Bon Appetit’s accuracy of replicating the Staplehouse dish. I’ve also never had it with a burnt honey gelée, but versions with fresh fruit gelée and some thinly sliced fresh fruit (peaches and strawberries are two I recall) have been outstanding.
