The smooth sea bass pate carried smokey notes, but I personally felt the flavour could get a tad one-dimensional after your second piece of bread. The grilled sourdough, which was procured from Mother Dough Bakery, was great and buttery which is probably why the pate was only lightly seasoned. The cherry cardamom jam was a nice addition if you want to have some contrasting flavours for your tastebuds. Overall, I prefer a stronger flavour from the pate itself, perhaps because I'm so used to eating chicken liver pate that is rich in flavour.
