Unique mangalitza sausage full of character, as the deeply aromatic black truffles together with the richly flavoured meat make for an indulgent delicacy. This artisan charcuterie is made in small-batches with 80% fresh mangalitza pork and 20% grey cattle beef, and the combination of these two ancient Hungarian breeds provides a memorable and intense experience.
The free-range sausage is high in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, as well as a range of anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins while low in cholesterol, making it a healthy choice with heart-protective properties.
Delicious on its own, in sandwiches, as a pizza topping or sliced into risottos and pasta sauces. It makes the perfect center-piece for charcuterie boards, going especially well with hard cheese including Cheddar, Parmesan or Gouda.
Received 1* at the 2020 Great Taste Award.
Comments from the Great Taste Judges:
"A shiny, thin sausage that is firm but easily yielding in the mouth. Deep tangy aroma. There is an interesting level of flavours; the truffle is well pitched and allows the flavours of the meat to shine through. Would be perfect in a pasta sauce."
