Based on a recipe from Simply French, the cookbook where Patricia Wells presents the cuisine of Joël Robuchon. Per the introduction, “Quatre épices, literally 'four spices,' is a classic French mixture designed to season terrines of pork or duck liver. Use the best-quality spices you can find, and grind them yourself in a spice or coffee mill. I generally prepare only the amount I will need for each terrine.”
