A culinary conundrum!
by Creusebear • Tue 26 Jun 2018 23:49
I have been pondering this for a while but can't decide on a definitive definition of the difference between ....
Rillettes ... Pate... and .. Terrine
Any ideas?

Haha, good question, one that I've pondered myself. I think it must be to do with spread-ability on toast; pate spreads nicely, terrine is difficult to spread and is more solid and rillettes are, well, mostly just yuck. :|

rillettes typically contain bits of shredded meat....terrines are prepared and served in a small pottery container.....and pâtés are rather more of a finely ground-up consistency. I like most of all of these, tho some are a bit too authentique for my taste.
