This pot of rustic paradise contains a delicacy that might just become your next gourmet comfort food. Made from tiny pieces of lean, shredded duck meat, these rillettes are seasoned with salt, pepper and onion powder, and slowly cooked in duck fat. This forms a smooth, delectable paste that’s perfect for a starter or party food. Alternatively, share it with a friend or loved one for the perfect picnic or lunch date!
As with pate, it’s wonderful slathered on crisp, country bread, toast points or crackers. Combine with a lightly spiced wine and you’ll be living in bucolic bliss. Since it comes jar-sealed to preserve those flavors, it can also make for an excellent gift or picnic idea.
These rillettes come courtesy of Delpeyrat, a manufacturer specializing in the first-class preparation of gourmet duck meat. Founded in 1890, Delpeyrat provides to a global audience over a hundred years of expertise in traditional French foie gras, pate and rillettes. These particular rillettes were produced at their base in Canada.
