Restaurant Latour at Crystal Springs showcases the prized Mangalitsa pig with a special Mangalitsa Tasting Menu from October 17 – 20. Raised by New Jersey’s own Mosefund Farm, Mangalitsa are a heritage breed of wooly pig from Central Europe descended from wild boar that are much sought after by chefs for their rich, succulent meat. Crystal Springs worked directly with Mosefund in preparation for the dinner, first choosing two pigs to raise and then providing them a special diet of acorn and chestnuts for three months.

The eight-course Mangalitsa Pig Tasting Menu ($135) created by Crystal Springs Executive Chef Timothy Fischer and Chef de Latour John Benjamin utilizes every part of the animal from the belly to the loin to the cheek to the fat back for a unique nose-to-tail dining experience. Sommelier Susanne Lerescu has created a special wine pairing ($60) highlighting the pinot noir grape to accompany the menu. Reservations can be made by calling 973-827-5996 ext 3.
