  • 125 ml champagne or dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar


  • STEP 1
    Melt the butter in a frying pan and cook the livers and garlic over a fairly high heat for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the livers are browned and caramelised on the outside but slightly pink on the centre. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
