Only a few weeks into Operation Porcupine, we've got a neat development: Michael Mina, has ordered all our tenderloins and cheek meat (jaw muscle or masseter). They went for some of the best parts on our pigs. By acting now, they've ensured they'll get it preferentially, which is smart, because there's never enough Mangalitsa tenderloin and cheek meat.
It looks like they'll be serving Mangalitsa regularly on one or both of their menus (classic and trio). We are only getting started - so details will come later.
Chris L'Hommedieu is one of the best chefs in the USA. Its great he likes Wooly Pigs brand Mangalitsa so much. Michael Mina has been awarded two Michelin stars. It is one of the best restaurants in the USA. Its great that Wooly Pigs brand Mangalitsa will be served regularly (details pending) at this restaurant.
It has only been a few weeks since Operation Porcupine began. It is very nice to get this positive result so soon.
