Three Heritage Pork Chop Tasting Flight

Flight of (pork) fancy.

What gives meat flavor? In my experience, there are four main factors: One, what did the animal eat? Two, what breed of animal was it? Three, how was the animal raised? And four, how was the meat processed?

Here, we've got an exploration of three different heritage breeds of pigs. They were all raised outdoors on pasture, without antibiotics or hormones, on American farms across the midwest. It's an opportunity to explore how these heritage breeds—which have been raised for centuries specifically for their flavor—compare and contrast. 

You might see one of these breeds at your local butcher's counter or on a menu at a high-end restaurant. It's rare, though, to find three all in one place, assembled into a single tasting flight.

Our pork tasting flight includes two each of three different breeds, 6 chops total:

  • Red Wattle, known for its sweet flavor and meltingly delicious fat
  • Duroc, known for its depth and complexity
  • Ibérico, Spain’s iconic breed now raised in Georgia

In total, the box includes over 3.5 pounds of supremely flavorful pork, a one of a kind experience, ready for grilling. We also include some notes on each breed so you can read while you eat.

Since our holiday 2021 catalogs got sent to the printer a few months ago, we lost our source for the Ibérico pork chops. We don't expect to be able to replace them in the foreseeable future, rendering this gift box permanently unavailable. I'm sorry for any disappointment this may have caused! We do still have the Red Wattle and Duroc chops, if one (or both) of those might be a fit for you. Or perhaps another meaty gift would do the trick?
