  • White bread (I used a ciabatta loaf)
  • Chicken and port pâté
  • Cucumber
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Microgreens


  • Cut the white bread into circles.
  • Scrape aspic off the pâté and mash a little to soften before putting it into a piping bag.
  • Pipe rosettes onto the bread circles.
  • Cut the cucumber into chunky slices and dab dry on a piece of paper towel.
  • Gently press the cucumber slices onto the pate rosette.
  • Stick a bamboo skewer through the tip of a basil leaf, then through a cherry tomato and then fold the basil underneath the tomato and through the skewer.
  • Stick the skewer into the tea sandwich.
  • Top with some microgreens to finish.
