Pork & chicken terrine
Prep Time : 7:00 | Cook Time : 1:20 | Total Time : 8:20 | Serving : 10 person.


  • 20 long slices flat pancetta (see note)

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon juniper berries (see note), crushed

  • 2 tablespoons brandy

  • 500g pork mince

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

  • 2 teaspoons chopped thyme leaves

  • 2 tablespoons pistachio kernels

  • 170g chicken breast fillet


  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a 9cm x 17cm (1-litre) terrine or loaf pan with 12 pancetta slices, leaving enough overhanging the sides to enclose the top.

  • Step 2

    Chop remaining 8 pancetta slices. Heat oil in a frypan over medium-high heat, then cook pancetta and onion, stirring, for 5 minutes until onion has softened and pancetta starts to crisp.

  • Step 3

    Add the juniper berries and brandy and simmer for 1-2 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated. Transfer to a bowl and cool. Add the mince, nutmeg, herbs and nuts, then season well and mix with your hands.

  • Step 4

    Pack terrine with half the pork mixture. Slice the chicken lengthways into 4 thin slices and arrange on the top, overlapping slightly so there are no gaps. Add remaining pork, pressing down well, then cover with overhanging pancetta.

  • Step 5

    Cover terrine with foil, then place in a roasting pan. Pour in enough boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the terrine, then bake for 1 hour. Remove foil and bake for a further 10 minutes or until the pancetta is crisp on top. Remove terrine from roasting pan and cool.

  • Step 6

    Drain off any excess juices from the terrine, then place on a baking tray. Cover the top with foil, cut a piece of cardboard to fit, then place on top. Weigh terrine down with cans. Chill overnight.

  • Step 7

    The next day, bring terrine to room temperature. Turn out onto a board or platter, then slice thickly. Drizzle with a little olive oil and serve with the farmers’ market salad.
