Christoph Wiesner roasts a Mangalitsa, caveman-style.
Mosefund Farm has announced that in about 9 months (January 2010), they'll have a Mangalitsa workshop in New Jersey.
Christoph Wiesner, President of the Austrian Mangalitsa Breeders' Association will instruct, teaching the students:
- Slaughtering, scalding, eviscerating
- Organ processing
- Breaking down carcasses - e.g. seam butchery
- Making lard
- Curing Mangalitsa - Lardo, Speck, salami, etc.

Short of going to Christoph's farm in the Fall, when they kill their Mangalitsa, you'd never get this kind of instruction on such high-quality pigs. Space will be extremely limited. Contact Michael of Mosefund Farm for more info.
I'm confident that Mosefund and the Wiesners will make the event a success, just as the Woodinville Mangalitsa event was a success. Given that it will be such an amazing event, so close to New York City, I think the media will surely cover it.
