It's possible that chef Erick Harcey of Victory 44 is incapable of making an ugly plate of food. No matter the dish, Harcey routinely turns out visual feasts -- to say nothing of the flavors. His pate, a humble dish not often known as the belle of the food-pic-worthy ball, is a stunner, garnished with crisp prosciutto and dark blueberries that shine like jewels.
Though served alongside homemade crackers with a pretzel-like flavor, this unctuous soft and creamy dip is even fit for the gluten-free: That pate spreads just as beautifully on the slices of crispy prosciutto. Before the richness overwhelms you, pop a blueberry in your mouth and enjoy a full sensory memory of the late summer sun. Bite after bite, this is a dish that tastes just as lovely as it looks.
