If you're as tired of prepackaged, supermarket pâté as I am, then head over to Euro Bread & Cafe (6874 Stirling Rd., Davie, 954-587-3876) in the newly opened The Shops at Stirling Place. Among other upscale items, including Dijon mustard blended with blue cheese and truffle vinaigrette with Meyer lemons, the cafe -- French, not pan-European -- offers three kinds of pâté. Purveyed from a French charcuterie out of California, these country-style terrines and mousses are cut fresh while you wait, and if you can't make up your mind, you can even get a sample. Or choose one of the three for a baguette sandwich, and wash it down with fresh-squeezed orange juice or a double cappuccino. You might just be so full of luscious cholesterol, you'll forgo the almond croissant, pear tart, or hazelnut chocolate bar. Then again, you might not.
