Love them or hate them, when cooked well, with golden chanterelle mushrooms, a touch of cream and a little brandy, chicken livers can be a revelation. I cooked this at the same Burgundy vineyard Floyd visited back in 1986, Domaine René Leclerc. I remember setting the tea towels on fire, just as he would have done – and drinking a bottle of red wine, just as he would have done.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
25g butter
25ml olive oil
400g chicken livers, trimmed
400g chanterelle mushrooms
1 shallot, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
50ml brandy
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
75ml double cream
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 slices ciabatta, toasted
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan over high heat. When it is hot, add the chicken livers, chanterelles, shallot and garlic and cook for 3–4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the livers and mushrooms are browned.
  2. Add the brandy and bring to the boil, then stir in the mustard, cream and cayenne pepper and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Spoon the chicken livers, chanterelles and sauce onto the toast and serve immediately.
