1. Refrigerate the Paris Pâté cans for a few hours before opening them to get an optimal texture.
2. Put the Paris Pâté into a pastry bag with a plain pastry tip*.

Canned pâté can be kept on the shelf as long as it has not been opened. To enjoy the best taste and texture, we recommend putting the unopened can in the fridge for at least one hour before consuming it.
We recommend keeping leftovers in an sealed container that will keep it air tight. Be sure to consume leftovers within two days at most.
These products are quite alike and are made of similar ingredients. If there is any difference at all, it’s that the pâté de foie in the refrigerated section of the grocery store will not last as long as our products.
This air bubble occurs naturally during the cooking process and is normally found in most pâtés.
In Quebec, most big supermarkets (IGA, Metro, Provigo, Walmart) and many independent corner stores in the regions stock Paris Pâté products. Some supermarkets in other Canadian provinces also sell our products. If you cannot find Paris Pâté in your favourite supermarket, please advise us, and we will let you know of a supermarket nearby where it is available.
Sometimes supermarkets only offer the most popular flavours. if you make a request, the manager may be willing to add it to the store’s shelves. If that doesn’t work, contact us and we will be pleased to let you know which businesses close to you stock the flavour you are looking for.

Certainly, Paris Pâté cans are 100 % recyclable! They are even easier to recycle than other materials such as plastic or glass.
The early days to the present…
In 1933, right in the middle of the Great Depression, Aliments Ouimet-Cordon Bleu Inc. embarked on an adventure. With the help of a $20,000 loan, J-René Ouimet started up a company that distributed prepared foods and imported European cheeses. A farmer’s son, he quickly developed a faithful customer base. He named his company La maison J.-René Ouimet Ltée.
Around the same time the Faille brothers, Lucien and Aimé, launched their Cordon Bleu brand, which was inspired by the popularity of their mother’s pâtés. Mr. Ouimet was a neighbour of the Failles and was already the exclusive distributor of Cordon Bleu Ltée in Quebec and Ontario. He developed a particular interest in their company and became its owner a few years later.
Over the years, the company acquired the Paris Pâté brand and grouped together all its pâtés under this new signature.
Today, with all its expertise in pâtés and the production of canned foods, the company represents over 80 years of success with consumers!
Paris Pâté, a home-grown brand.
