Magruder’s Wild European Boar
New to this year’s Whole Hog Dinners, we’ll be wood fire roasting a different whole hog from one of our ranchers each night. Saturday, March 12th, will be Mac Magruder’s half Wild European, half Berkshire heritage breed. Chef Jonah got pretty excited when he first started working with Mac’s hogs a couple of weeks ago. The meat is very clean and sweet– with a nice balance of meat to fat, and the fat seems to melt at a lower temperature, which is not so good for salumi because the fat easily smears, but it is great for lardo, lonza and pancetta.
