"Fragrant and more pork roasty than the Italian versions."
— Mario Batali
"Rich mahogany color, a satiny texture, and a complex sweet earthiness that envelopes
your palate."
— Amy Scattergood, LA Times
"Amazing, ultrameaty, superluscious."
—Food + Wine Magazine
"...buttery texture and unmistakable nutty flavors, great subtlety, flows cross the palate with considerable richness but no oiliness or heaviness. Very pure and very nuanced...lots of fat and marbling but not a fatty taste. Stunning stuff!"
— Famed critic Robert Parker
"Reminiscent of Spain's coveted black footed Iberian pig."
— Craig LaBan, Philadelphia Inquirer
