/ IMAGE 4- The first recipe for rillettes dates from the 15th century. Originally intended to preserve pork, this recipe was prepared from the same proportion of fatty meat and lean meat, with salt and pepper as the only seasoning. The meats were heated until the fibers dissociated and the fat served alone as a binder to the whole. This dissociation of the fibers explains the really particular texture of the "rillettes". Albert Ménès offers a "high-end" version of this recipe with a pure duck rillette made exclusively from duck meat benefiting from the appellation "farmer's duck from the Landes". The meat is candied in its fat and precisely seasoned with Guérande salt.
