About The Class

Learn the secrets to making 3 country-style rustic French dishes with us – Savour some authentic terrine, pork rillettes and pâté made with chicken liver and mushrooms! Then enjoy the ones pre-made by our instructor as lunch, alongside salad & pickles.

A traditional terrine is a slow-cooked dish baked in the oven for at least over an hour, locking in all the juices from the meat. Baking in the oven creates a robust, chunky, texture and it usually consists of one through to several types of strongly flavored meats or fish and seafood. Traditionally, game meats and pork are often used.

Rillettes are similar to Pâtés and were made with fatty pork belly or pork shoulder in the olden times. The meat is usually cubed, salted and cured then cooked slowly over low heat until very tender and then shredded and blended with warm cooking fat to form a rustic paste. The Rillettes we make in class will go under pressure for 40 minutes in a pressure cooker.

Pâtés (pastes) more often are smooth, light and are usually made with duck or chicken livers. Liver pâté takes lesser time to prepare, but all three items are actually a form of preserved food and will be served the day after it is made.

The cooking method around these French classics centers around slow-cooking ensuring that the dish soaks up all the flavours for taste and then you can refrigerate it at home and enjoy it the next day.
