We love this truly delicious Goose Rillettes or Rillettes d’Oie from premium French producer J. Groliere. Goose meat is slowly cooked in goose fat and seasoned with spices (no alcohol and no pork) until the meat becomes soft and melty. These rillettes are an absolute pleasure to eat with their soft texture and the right level of fat. Perfect spread on toast, crackers or lavosh or on a nice crusty piece of bread.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
In 1960, Jeanne Grolière decided to dedicate herself to making conserves according to Périgord and family traditions. Using recipes, passed down from her parents and grandparents, she made her products in her own kitchen and sold them herself at the market each week. She developed a devoted group of regular customers and as her sales increased, she and her husband invested in a small workshop for making her conserves in their own home. As word of mouth increased the demand for her superb products she decided to create a new, bigger, more modern production facility in 1980 to manage the increasing sales. Today the Company is run by Jeanne’s two sons, Jean-Marc and Jacques who carry on the fine traditions of excellence instilled in them by their mother.
