Mangalitsa, Clampffer and Stockner in Gourmet

Carolyn Banfalvi wrote a neat article, available at about Mangalitsa, Chef Michael Clampffer, Chef Manfred Stockner, Zum Weissen Rauchfangkehrer, etc.

When she told me a few months that she was going to write about Mangalitsa, I urged her to somehow make the short trip from Budapest to Vienna so that she could experience a different side to Mangalitsa. From reading her article, it sounds like she had a great time.

Historically, Mangalitsa pigs were produced in Hungary and eaten in places like Vienna and Budapest. In that sense, Mangalitsa is traditional Austrian food, despite it being a Hungarian product.
