Patchwork Pâtés

Patchwork’s first ambient pâté was the chicken liver, anchovy & caper (and lots of other exciting goodies including celery, garlic, lemon and olives). The recipe is taken from an Old Italian recipe from a family that we met in Italy.

Our fantastic Spelt Oat Finger Biscuits were born through searching for the finest oat cakes to compliment our pâtés. They are made with the finest Scot’s Oats and the best West Country organic spelt from Sharpham Park.

Who are we

Patchwork was established in 1982 by Margaret Carter, a talented, although untrained, home cook, who found herself divorced with three children to look after and in need of an income.

With a start up cost of just £9.00, saved from the housekeeping, she began selling her homemade pâtés to pubs in nearby Llangollen.

As Margaret attracted more and more customers and the business successfully started to expand she moved the business from her house in 1987 to a purpose-equipped factory in the heart of Ruthin.

Despite the commercial scale today, everything is still hand-made in small batches, without artificial colouring, additives or preservatives, to Margaret’s original recipes.

Message from Marcus

marcus carters artisan food clubAs some may know I am a big fan of Patchwork Pâté... It is also my family business and I worked there for 10 years... so my review is as a son and fan and there for totally bias. The spelt biscuits are a perfect accompaniment to the pâté as well as great with cheese and on their own as a snack. The anchovy and capers is my most favourite pate in the whole of the Patchwork range.
