Chicken liver cream from Tuscany
An inexpensive one, typical Italian specialty. The little ones are called "Crostini", crispy toasted white bread slices, on which the refined chicken-liver mixture comes into its own.
The chicken livers are also often replaced by porcini mushrooms in Tuscany. I prefer mushrooms, as they do not store heavy metals and are in season all year round. You need about 350 g Mushrooms.
