We got these cool little containers of pate in our Despana Basket: Black Olive, Green Olive, and Artichoke. I broke out some bread and some cheese and called it our appetizer last night. But when we peeled back the covers, it looked so unappetizing, we hesitated before eating the brown, gelatinous goo.

We convinced ourselves to taste it, but after a taste of each flavor, we pushed the plate aside, and it ended up in the garbage. It’s rare that food gets thrown out in this apartment, but these pates were seriously gross. The artichoke pate wasn’t pleasant but both olive flavors were extremely bitter and caused a gag reflex for me. I guess it must be an acquired taste… like vegemite?
