Known as Mangalica, Mangalitsa or Mangalitza, this is the pig prized for its high fat marbled meat that has been hailed as the Kobe beef of pork and attracted critical acclaim from chefs around the world.
As delicious as it is, tracking down this curly haired rare breed hog is still somewhat of a challenge, despite its growing popularity.
In response to the huge Facebook interest we had from our initial article introducing the delights of the succulent meat, we've decided to put together a list of some of the farms, shops and restaurants where you can get your hands on this tasty find.
From a rural farm in Wales to a three Michelin-starred restaurant in New York find out where you can try this tasty delicacy and you'll be hooked.
Meanwhile, those wanting to go the whole hog should mark the annual Mangalica Festival Budapest in their diary for three days of celebrations from 10 to 12 February 2017 (TBC) and anything and everything related to Mangalitsa.
