Rillettes are a meat (usually pork or duck) “paté” type preparation where the meat is cooked slowly in fat and then shredded and mixed with some of the fat to form a spread. Rillettes are delicious served with bread.
This is extremely simplified version of “rillettes” but is really lovely served as an aperitif or even as part of a starter.
