I made a visit to the Polish Deli yesterday to buy some ‘kiszka’ (blood sausage), but more of that another time. While there I also got some duck pate and noticed ‘Smalec po Goralsku’, which was translated as Bacon Pate. I’m always looking for new edible delights to try and this fitted the bill.
Smalec is translated as lard, but this pate has big chucks of pork mixed in with it. I’m sure most people wouldn’t find the idea or the look of it appetising, but the creamy lard was just like a rich butter with the added bonus of bacon. It was prefect spread thickly on a crunchy brown baguette and I washed it down with an IPA, which helped cut through the pate nicely.
