We went to have dinner at the Grain de Sel in Dole, a great restaurant whose attractions are primarily its food, and also its position, looking out over the canal.
While there we had some amuse-bouches of chicken liver mousse on toast – marvellous. I have managed, I think, to reproduce it fairly faithfully.
If you want to extend this into more a light lunch it goes well with a salad of watercress and capers.
