Oh, dear, Margi, you have me going now. I LOVE liver. One of my all time favorites is one I had in the "old town" part of Orlando, Florida (Winter Park) on Park ave. It was fried chicken livers on a bed of frisee with a balsamic dressing. I do my best to reproduce that once in awhile. Your recipe sounds much like what our favorite Greek restauranteurs do and it is one of my favorite dishes. Liver lovers unite!!

Dear Claire,

The funniest thing to me is that I cannot believe, that such a simple Italian lunch, has me receiving all these posts from members -- how they love Calves Liver !!! I never realised that so many people like this cut of meat ...
Tell me about: chicken livers with Balsamic and, are they similar to a Paté ?

In Spain, there is a famous dish called: HIGADOS A LA JEREZ which is Chicken Livers in Brandy from Jerez De La Frontera, Cadiz on Southwest coast ...

In Veneto - Italy, the recipe I posted is how it is served throughout Venice, and the neighboring towns of Veneto ...

I had forgotten my paternal grandmom used to prepare it for me --- I like it deep pink ... It is very reasonably priced, and so thought for a change of pace --- and to post it too !

Orlando Downtown ... Amazing ... what we find, when least expecting it ...

Greeks ? another fave cuisine !!!

I had never eaten liver in Greece ... Italians have always ...

Kindest regards.

My daughter called me this morning and asked me if there was anything I needed while she was grocery shopping. She must have been reading my mind. I will be having liver for supper. I feel my appetite coming back.

When I lived in Tacoma I used to cook up a mess of chicken livers for my MIL and a plate full of liver for me with mashed potatoes and a side. And of course plenty of sauteed onions for both of us.

Thanks Margi for the seasoning idea. I am no longer at a loss as to what to use.
