TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Delicious albacore tuna is cooked in pork fat, which is a tradition on Ile d’Yeu, off of France’s West Coast. This tuna is then combined with the classic Italian cheese, Parmesan. What this unique combination gives us is a delicate tuna flavor enhanced by the nutty, fruity taste of Parmesan.

PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS

The La Belle-Iloise Tuna and Parmesan Rillettes is best enjoyed with bread or crackers, especially for aperitifs or starters. Or as a spread for sandwiches and flat breads. You could also use it to top salads or pastas.

THREE GENERATIONS OF QUALITY

La Belle-Iloise Conserverie was founded in 1932 near Quiberon, a fishing port in Brittany, France. Georges Hilliet was a son of a fisherman, and it seemed a natural thing to work with something close to his heart. The easy access to the sea also guaranteed fish that was fresh and quality.

Hilliet opened a direct sales store in 1967, after firmly distancing himself from the pressures of mass distribution. In 1982, under the leadership of his sons Georges and Bernard, La Belle-Iloise Conserverie began distance selling (or mail order selling). By 2011, they had over 50 stores. This is, at its heart, a family business. And now, helmed by Bernard’s daughter, Caroline Hilliet Le Branchu, they continue to be at the top of their game, selling only the best quality canned fish.
