    Manami's Note:

    Another recipe that we like by Chef Vitaly Paley, who transforms the Jewish staple into a rich Italian pate by flavoring chopped chicken livers with briny capers, salty anchovies and the sweet Tuscan wine vin santo. I never thought I would like anything other than the "Jewish Chopped Liver" but we served this for some doctors, social workers and directors of nursing from other homes in the Florida area and it was very delicious BUT I prefer the other! ;) The chopped liver can be tightly covered with plastic wrap pressed with plastic wrap pressed to the surface and refrigerated overnight. Let return to room temperature before serving. The crostini can be stored in in an airtight container for up to 2 days. UPDATE: You can add 1/4 cup of brandy in place of the vin santo and it changes the taste a bit :) - very smooth!
