Here’s a story, about a lovely lady who was raising some very tasty pigs. All of them were rare-breed Berkshires, like their mothers, and all had free-range digs.

Here’s a story about a chef named Alex, who loved pork, more than any other meat. After brining, braising, roasting and compressing – his belly was a treat!

The one day when this lady met this fellow, and they knew that it was a much more than a hunch; that they should join forces, and work together – to cook an amazing … dinner?
Well, close enough.

Bar Nacional uses Bundarra Berkshire pork for it’s signature pork belly dish.
If you haven’t tasted this dish yet, served at the moment with with apple, lemon verbena, seeds and grains, this has to be your best opportunity. For these three nights, all courses will feature Lauren’s beautiful pork. Oysters with Jamon vinaigrette, Spanish style morcilla, porky bits and pieces like Jamon crumbs and of course Shaun Quade’s Tocino del Cielo (Heaven’s Bacon) dessert to round out the evening.
We may even be able to convince Lauren to visit and chat about her pork. There is no better excuse to come and visit.
