PARFAITS are made with free range NZ liver. A parfait is finer than pâté. A pâté in France is a little bit closer to a terrine – denser. The parfait nearer a mousse – hence the word parfait.
TERRINES are one of the basics of the charcuterie, they are used widely in gourmet sandwiches or as light supper dish. As a canapé, it’s served on baguette, with gherkins or some onion jam. It’s like a traditional more-delicate French meat loaf. The name comes from the dish it is cooked in.
PATES Always made with liver – one of the best sources of vitamin A, and are generally served on toasted bread, a French crusty baguette or crackers, with a glass of wine.
RILLETTES is made from meat (not liver) that is more coarsely chopped or shredded, seasoned with salt and pepper and preserved slowly, to make a thick spread for sandwiches, or a stuffing for pasta. The savoury quality of rillettes comes from using quality cuts and a generous quantity of salt.
