You’ve probably heard of our beloved Menapian pig. It roamed the area between the Belgian coast and the river Scheldt about 2000 years ago. This hulking beast was seen as a true delicacy, all the rage among the Romans.
Yet for 2000 long years, the Menapian pig had all but disappeared from the pages of history. That is, until historical sources and the sudden discovery of a trove of untouched bones caught the interest of a handful of ardent pork aficionados. After years of cross-breeding, dietary experiments and scientific research in collaboration with Ghent University, Ruben Brabant and Hendrik Dierendonck managed to bring the breed back to life.
Sold in packs of 2 - approx. 1100 g.
TIP FOR THE BBQ:
Grill this piece of meat very briefly (4 to 5 min.) on a nice fire, without flames. This way, you can serve it nice and crispy. Sprinkle it with a pinch of coarse salt and let it rest for a while before serving.
