Duck rilettes

Recipe: Duck rillettes

Summary: Recipe for duck rillettes, it is always a lot of pleasure to present homemade duck rillettes to family or friends. I often take advantage of the end-of-year promotions of fatty ducks, to make this kind of recipes. I like to make big slices in country bread and to spread them generously with the duck rillettes. I deliberately make them not too fatty, but especially tasty to serve with a slightly dry white. I have already presented you with a lot of meat or fish rillettes, but it is mainly because I do not buy any cake for the aperitif and I never do the same thing twice. You now understand why I offer you so many choices for the preparation of your aperitifs. Duck rillettes for everyone to enjoy with a small sancerre and a good toast of country bread.
