Tasty Frenchy bites
 
In the mood for wholesome French pork pâtés? Brittany's Hénaff is the name that comes to mind first. This family-owned cannery founded more than a century ago is renowned for its carefully selected ingredients and its traditional know-how. No wonder it has been distinguished as an Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Business) by the French government...

Le Pâté Hénaff, in its iconic blue tin, is doubtless Hénaff's signature påté and the one you should try first. We also carry pork liver pâté and pork rillettes (pork meat slowly cooked in pork fat). Spread on a slice of good, crusty bread. Add a few cornichons (crunchy, tiny gherkins). Et voilà, you got yourself a hearty snack!
