The Rillettes Sarthoises would be a lovely addition to share as you coif...

Chef Jeff Smith (my handsome husband), loves researching and cooking dishes with authentic, old, classic preparations. Rillettes are one of the most traditional recipes in France. Different regions have different styles. The rillettes from Sarthe, are characterized by a rustic preparation with larger chunks of pork, a pale color, and a subtle taste due to long cooking times at a low temperature.

These rillettes began with a Heritage Berkshire pig from the pasture-based Ferguson Family Farm in northern Baltimore County. After breaking down the pig, Chef Smith salted and cooked it slowly for 12 hours. At this point, the meat was extremely tender. He blended it with fat to create a very tasty meat spread, rillettes.

Although I’d love to join you (I’m really due for an evening out), I’ll be with my two fabulous girls- Gertie & Fern.

Hope you can make it in!

All the best,
