Preparation steps
  1. In a pan, heat oil over medium heat and sauté the shallot for 2 minutes. Add pears, rosemary and water. Bring to a boil, cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the pears are tender. Remove rosemary then purée the pear mixture into a coulis using an immersion blender, season to taste and let cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F (210°C).
  3. Remove crusts from bread and cut each slice into 6 squares. Arrange on a baking sheet, brush with butter and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until the bread is golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool.
  4. Crush the crackers into fine crumbs and transfer to a small plate. Cut each pâté into 12 pieces and from into balls. Roll each ball in cracker crumbs to create pâté truffles and set aside.
  5. Spoon a line of pear coulis along a plate and set four pieces of bread along the coulis. Drizzle approx. 1/2 tsp. (2mL) of coulis directly onto each piece of bread, add a liver pâté truffle and top with jelly cubes.
  6. Toss the sprouts in a little olive oil and season. Place a small bunch of sprouts on each plate.
