  • Woodland Porchetta

    We now have two fantastic suppliers of Woodland pork available. Farmed here in Yorkshire in both the Vale and the Dales, our suppliers take advantage of the variable terrain of this fine county. The pork is some of the tastiest free range pork available and is perfect when rolled and made into a Woodland Porchetta.

    Porchetta is famed across Italy, with different regions favouring different flavourings. It is so cherished it has its own festival with chefs competing to make the best Porchetta.

    At R&J we have gone with a traditional flavouring as picked by our head Butcher. It is closer to the Abruzzo region flavourings as we have added fennel, rosemary and garlic.

    This amazing joint can be barbecued or cooked in the oven. It is great for large gatherings, as all you need to provide is some good bread rolls to pack the Porchetta into. It is also great as a Sunday Roast, just make sure you save some for those essential Woodland Porchetta sandwiches the next day!
