An Origin in the Heart of the Loire Valley

Rillettes have been around for centuries, but did you know they originated from the city of Tours? Born in the heart of Touraine in the 15th century, the method involved cooking pieces of pork or pig uncovered for an extended period, ranging from 5 to 12 hours, in a round cast iron pot, previously soaked in lard. Traditionally washed down with Vouvray, they were enjoyed by placing them forked onto a slice of bread.

The Evolution of Rillettes Throughout History

Rillettes were first mentioned in 1896, originally made from slices of pork. They were once used as a means of preserving meat in rural environments during the Middle Ages. Over the course of culinary developments, rillettes diversified their ingredients by including not only pork but also duck, chicken, rabbit, and even more recently, fish or shellfish. Tuna rillettes represent a contemporary variation of this tradition, where tuna is slowly cooked in its fat, then mashed to create a smooth and flavorful paste.
