During our recent visit to A.O.C., we sampled some of their amazing wines as well as their beautiful charcuterie board. We couldn't get enough of the pork rillettes! Our server told us that chef and owner Suzanne Goin’s husband (also a chef), would come by the restaurant late at night and wait for her to get off work at the bar with a half bottle of white wine and pork rillettes. It's his favorite thing at the restaurant and we understand why!
The team at A.O.C. was kind enough to share the recipe with us, so you can try your hand at this amazing dish at home. For even more great recipes, you can order your copy of The A.O.C. Cookbook here.
Sommelier Caroline Styne says that the "pork-rillettes recipe is a slice of earthy, fatty heaven. It has a soft, meaty flavor and rich texture, and when eaten with the pickled onions, it is the perfect mix of low and high on the palate."
