CONFIT & RILLETTES
When you think of old school hunters cooking, you probably picture them cooking over cooking with lots of bear fat in a cast iron skillet. If that's something you're into, then you're in the right place. These are meats that are slow cooked in fat. The fat can come from wild or domestic sources like bears, pigs, ducks or geese.
