Pâte

Pâte
Can be used all year round for any type of setting. Fancy dinner party as a nice snack with some nice bread. Or if you’re as boujee as us, we make this nearly every month and just spoon it into our gobs watching love island. You don’t have to watch love island, we are forced to, and Pâte makes it a little easier. Especially if you’re sipping the banging wine below.
