Mosefund Mangalitsa Dinners

I saw on Facebook today that Mosefund's Mangalitsa pigs will be featured in two special dinners.

The first is on Long Island. The menu looks incredible. Michael Clampffer was kind enough to let me attend Mosefund's 2010 Pigstock, where I got to meet Gerry Hayden, the chef who'll put on that dinner along with Claudia Fleming. You can read an interview with them here.

Michael is also doing a dinner at the Culinary Vegetable Institute with Chef James Briscone, another chef I got to meet at Mosefund's 2010 Pigstock. The combination of microgreens, Mangalitsa lard and cured Mangalitsa products should really be something. Here's the menu:

Assorted Mangalitsa Charcuterie with The Chef’s Garden Pickled Vegetables
Heirloom Baby Lettuce Mix with Greaves and Spring Garlic Croutons
Crostini of Shaved Radishes, Whipped Lard, Micro Fines Herbes and Pea Shoots
Mangalitsa “Cassoulet” with Chef’s Garden Beans, Baby Turnips and Swiss Chard

Roasted Mangalitsa Pork with Spring Meadow Herbs and Natural Jus
Cured Ham and Baby Vegetable Gratin with Fresh Farm Eggs

Earth to Table Vegetables
Bacon Braised Spring Greens
Mustard Glazed Carrot Variation
Roasted Heirloom Potatoes with Micro Chives

Chocolate Ganache Cakes with Candied Bacon and Sour Cream Ice Cream
Rhubarb Pie with Lard Crust and Lemon Verbena
