If like me you had never heard of or tasted rillettes please read on.
Rillettes is a meat product traditionally using pork meat that has been salted and then cooked and stored in its own fat. As such it is a type of confit.
Wow it is a show stopper! It tastes a bit like rough textured pate and not fatty or greasy.
Try serving it on crusty bread alongside other preserved meats and pickled vegetables.
I also love it in salads and it makes a mean sandwich with cheese, tomatoes and leafy greens.
