Gourmet pâté supplier Lucullus France has rolled out to Waitrose two chutney-style confits to accompany its meat pâtés and terrines.

The fig confit and onion & white wine confit (rsp: £1.99/100g) were inspired by the 1990s fashion for serving pâté with onion marmalade in bistros across France. The confits had a subtler flavour than English chutneys and were a “perfect accompaniment” to its pâtés and terrines, said the company.
