I don’t think we have had a chilli pate to review here at ChileFoundry HQ, but Lee Sylvester from Tan Rosie Foods sent us a jar of their Hot Aubergine and Mushroom Pate, and we are greatly looking forward to giving it a try, the toaster is on with some nice home-made brown bread is toasting away..

Tan Rosie - Hot Aubergine & Mushroom Pate

For our US readers, for Aubergine read Eggplant, the Aubergine is a relative of the Chilli, they are both from the  Solanaceae Family a group of plants that includes the Potato, Tomato and even the Deadly Nightshade, originally a native of India, in the 15th century is started it travels around the world.

IngredientsAubergines, Mushrooms, Onion, Garlic, Olive Oil, Thyme, Oregano, Salt, Black Pepper, Butter, Scotch Bonnet Pepper, Balsamic Vinegar.

Jar kindly supplied by Tan Rosie Foods

So now to the pate, on popping the lid there is a delicate smell of Aubergines and Mushrooms, the pate is a nice thick looking consistency, and is packed with the two main ingredients, it spreads easily on the toast, the the first taste is a complete delight, lot of flavour from both the Aubergines and Mushroom but I can also taste the Thyme and Oregano with just the mildest hint of heat from the Scotch Bonnets.

Well half a jar has gone in no time, I am getting just a little more heat, but this is a mild product with the Scotch Bonnets being more for flavour than heat, the more I eat the more I can also taste the garlic, but like everything else it is not overpowering, it just adds to the mix.

This is a real comfort food served with hot butter toast. At £3.90 a jar, it is really unusual and if you are not greedy like me then this would make a great starter for 4/5 people.

You can order this and a range of other Tan Rosie products on their web site.
