Rillettes (pronounced ree-yettes) are coarse-textured and deliciously old-fashioned. They make a great alternative to paté. Often made with pork, duck or goose, the savoury quality of rillettes comes from using traditionally fatty meats and a generous quantity of salt. They will keep for weeks if covered with a layer of fat. Personally, I prefer pork.
A tried and tested dish that is delicious and simple.
