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.
Christoph Wiesner and his wife Isabell-Christina Zernitz-Wiesner are credited with being some of the key protagonists responsible for protecting the breed.
In 2004 Christoph became president of Austria’s Mangalitsa Pig Breeder’s Union. At their farm in Göllersdorf, Arche De Wiskental, Christoph and Isabell breed the pigs as well as curing the meat and leading culinary tours. Website
