Combine all ingredients except bacon, mixing thoroughly. Line paté mould or loaf tin with 4 strips bacon. Fill with paté mixture and arrange remaining 4 strips of bacon on top. Cover with aluminium foil. Pre-heat oven to 350°F (180°C). Place in a large pan; fill pan with hot water so that water comes up to about 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) below top of loaf pan.
