“The pleasures of the table are for every man, of every land, and no matter
of what place is history or society; they can be part of all his other pleasures,
and they last the longest, to console him when he has outlived the rest.”
~ Brillat-Savarin

Rillettes of Pork and Duck

"Rillettes are easy to make. If well covered in the refrigerator they
should keep for a week or more, ready to be served with cocktails.
Here is a basic recipe that can be modified with other herbs and
spices to suit individual tastes."

1 1/2 pounds lean pork shoulder
1 pound duck meat, with skin and fat,
cut into bite-size pieces
1 medium onion, peeled and studded
with 3 cloves
1 large clove garlic, peeled
1 1/2 cups dry white wine
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1/8 teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg

Place the pork and duck in a saucepan, cover with water, and cook
over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
Add the onion and garlic to the saucepan and cover tightly. Cook for
30 minutes, and then add the wine, salt and pepper. Simmer for 3
hours,  covered.
Discard the onion. Remove the duck and pork with a slotted spoon,
and let cool. When just cool enough to handle, place the duck meat
and fat along with the pork in a bowl. Using a wooden spoon or wire
whisk, work the meats and fat together. Add nutmeg and more salt
and pepper if needed.
The more the mixture is beaten, the whiter it becomes. Taste for
seasonings, and then spoon the rillettes into a terrine. Cover tightly
and refrigerate. Serve cool with French bread and perhaps some
Dijon mustard.
