  1. Add the chicken livers and parsley to the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. In another bowl, whisk the cream with the eggs and season with 3/4 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Stir the custard into the chicken livers and pour into the prepared gratin dish.

Suggested Pairing

A dry mineral wine will enrich this dish with its slight zing. Try a Chardonnay from California.
