How to enjoy it

As a kid, our folks would heat up a small amount of rillettes, spread it on thick-cut country toast, and place a fried egg on top. Served with a dandelion salad dressed in lemon and oil; this was the breakfast of champions in the Cairo household.

To impress a crowd, we like to make rillette hand-pies. They’re perfect appetizers but made larger and they’re a solid lunch.

How it's made

One of the beauties of making charcuterie is that you can use the whole animal - from the muscle to the trim to the fat - to create something delicious. In the case of rillettes, you use the animal's own fat to tenderize and preserve the meat. Rillettes use the same cooking technique, however the meat is chopped fine and ends up a bit like a paté, with a smooth texture.

Rillettes are said to be the first "butter" in the world - smeared on stale bread to make it palatable. We use cubed pork shoulder, marinated in small batches with white wine, spices, fresh garlic, ginger and thyme, then cook it gently in house rendered lard. Next, we hand-chop and mix to create the most authentic, delicate and delicious rillettes this side of Le Mans.
