Binkley's in Arizona

Mouth By Southwest has a review of a 30-course dinner at Binkley's in Arizona. As the reviewer writes:

After a while, it just became a blur of Mangalitsa pork and Hudson Valley foie gras, liquid nitrogen and chemical baths, truffles and rare South American flowers. (See for yourself in the slideshow above.) Overall, though, it ranks among the top five dining experiences I’ve had in my life. And isn’t that what it’s all about?

I've reproduced the obvious Manglaitsa courses - although, if they used lard, it could be in more courses.

At top, there's the charcuterie plate. In the middle, a bread pudding course with mangalitsa lardo on top (could be interesting!) and finally some loin.

I have to figure that some of their cookies or cakes were cooked with Mangalitsa lard, because it really makes that stuff taste great.
