Found a old box of recipe cards (70/80's era) and this one seems to be good and easy. Times are estimated.

- 2 tablespoons plain flour
- 1⁄2 cup milk

Since I have never had pate' I can only describe the flavors. I enjoyed it very much. It has a good aftertaste. Made to specs except I used red wine as that is all I had on-hand, and although not a recommended wine for fish, it went well with this one. -Buddha-
