Albert Ménès offers you Yuzu and Sea Bass Rillettes, a perfect pairing of the delicate texture of fish and the fresh taste of yuzu.
Dried Tomato Cream: this delicate and creamy recipe has been made without any artificial preservatives, colours or flavouring.

They are dried, preserved in oil, made into a paste then slow cooked: this process helps to lock in all their natural flavour and aroma.
