Charlie, it is a sort of paste. Usually liver. Goose liver to be exact. But it can be any liver. Pate' means paste. So you can make it from mushrooms, liver or any food you can turn into a paste. It is usually served on small crackers, or little pointed pieces of toasts called 'points.'
Anyone else care to chime in with a clearer explanation?
