A special edition gourmet charcuterie made with water buffalo and mangalitza. The artisanal chorizo combines free-range meat from these two native Hungarian breeds, which have been marinated in organic red wine and seasoned with local wild herbs, then smoked over aromatic beech-wood, creating a truly unique experience. The rich, meaty flavour of water buffalo is wonderfully balanced by the addition of mangalitza pancetta, which gives it a tender and juicy texture.
Water buffalo and mangalitza are naturally low in cholesterol.
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 2* at the 2021 Great Taste Award.
Comments from the Great Taste judges:
"An enticing, dark coloured chorizo with a fantastic texture combining meltingly tender meat and a pleasant chew. The red wine, herb and smoke flavours are all present, nicely balanced and complement the flavours of pork and buffalo. An absolutely delicious chorizo that was wonderful tasted cold and which we would really love to try cooking with at home. An unusual and highly successful product."
