THE HERITAGE MEAT MOVEMENT IS JUST ARRIVING, AND IT’S TAKING THE CULINARY WORLD BY STORM…
The world’s most decorated chefs are captured by these meats’ beguiling flavor and the passionate, artisanal producers who raise them.
That’s why the chefs who reign over the country’s culinary epicenters—from New York to Washington, D.C., and from Seattle to Napa Valley—insist on serving heritage meats in their restaurants. Chefs like:
- Mario Batali of Iron Chef fame and Michigan’s resident food mega star
- Dan Barber, James Beard award-winning chef
- Lidia Bastianich, James Beard Award for Best Chef (New York City)
In fact, at his Manhattan restaurant, Mario Batali plates a heritage breed of pork that the French of New Orleans in the 1700s and 1800s went nuts over. (And the French were no culinary slouches.)
This breed alone had the robust flavor that could stand up to the bold, intense flavors of Creole cooking (what’s more, it made exceptional charcuterie).
THEN—MYSTERIOUSLY—THE BREED JUST DISAPPEARED.
It became the stuff of legend, a “lost breed”, until something unexpected happened…
It was the late 1960s or 1970s. The woodlands of eastern Texas. A pack of very unusual swine is discovered wandering and rooting on the forest beds…
And this pack of swine had a most curious feature: appendages dangling from either side of their jowls.
They’re called wattles, and there’s only one swine breed the world over that has them: the Red Wattle.
While the rest of the culinary world goes ga-ga over Berkshire/Kurobuta pork, Red Wattles have begun to stage a comeback…
THE RED WATTLE REVOLUTION
Red Wattles produce a pork so finely marbled that it’s a marvel to behold.
It’s has a wonderfully deep pinkish—almost red—flesh which causes the intramuscular fat to stand out.
In fact, once you get a thick, juicy Red Wattle chop sizzling the redness gets even more intense. (You’ll swear you’re cooking a ribeye steak!)
It is melt-in-your-mouth tender, a far cry from the tough-as-a-hockey-puck pork that you buy in the grocery store.
And—oh—how sweet, silky, and delicate is its luscious fat…An experience of such decadence that it might as well be dessert!
Yet, there is a pure, clean flavor to heritage Red Wattle pork that gives it all a marvelous balance.
IN THE ENTIRE STATE OF MICHIGAN, THERE IS ONLY A TINY HANDFUL OF FARMS RAISING REGISTERED RED WATTLE HOGS
Idle River Farms is the creation of Matt & Kristal Burdick.
These are “seventh generation” farmers. (And when I say “seventh generation” I mean that the Burdicks have been farming in America for as long as anyone can remember.)
THE BURDICKS HAVE AN UNCANNY KNACK FOR ANTICIPATING THE NEXT CULINARY TREND
Matt’s father, for instance, was raising 100% grass-fed cattle in the ‘70s and ‘80s, twenty years before it was en vogue.
Matt, true son of his father, therefore passed over the Berkshire breed and threw everything behind the Red Wattle.
After combing the country for the finest breeding stock, he chose a farm south of the Mason-Dixie line—closer to the breed’s New Orleanian home. Driving back to Michigan with his precious cargo, Matt introduced these hogs to their first home-away-from-home in the Peninsula State…
It’s a home where the Burdicks give their hogs that full, long life that’s alone able to coax the very best flavor and quality out of pork.
They feast on pasture during the growing season.
To round out their diet, Matt slow-roasts GMO-free soybeans (he grows the soy himself, an expertise his grandfather taught him).
Then, after seven long months, the hogs are ready for the tiny group of Michiganders who have discovered, like Mario Batali, the untold pleasures of true heritage Red Wattle pork…
