Dry-Aged roast from woolly pig – Simply Delicious!


The Mangalica pig, originally from Hungary, is one of the most delicious pig breeds. Properly kept, the meat is a delicacy that is incredibly popular among gourmets. Not only beef can mature in the dry-ager, but also pork of the best quality.

The quality should be respected. It should be as high as possible and should be dispensed with low-quality pork from mass storage. For then it can be matured, unfold its taste and serve for a fine roast. We made a crusty roast with matured pork and loved it!
