Last month I attended an event put on by Little Green Pickle and Portland Bloggers where I had the privelege to not only meet Mark from Tails & Trotters, but try his delicious food as well. The evening was filled with extrodinary cousine from Olympic Provisions, Besaws, Departure, but Tails & Trotters left me intrigued and wanting more.
Inspired by the regional cured hams of Europe, Tails & Trotters is the Pacific Northwet's first signature pork producer developed from pork finished on local hazelnuts. Studies have determined that pigs fattened on nuts produce meat with a higher percentage of healthy fats, as well as increase the flavor in both the fat and the meat.
This porchetta roast, boneless belly and loin stuffed with sausage, would be an excellent main course for any holiday dinner. Make it easy on yourself and pick up a roast at Tails & Trotters, all of the work will be done and you will be guarenteed a wonderful meal. Per their recomendations, I served the porchetta roast alongside salsa verde, made of parsley, scallions and capers, which helped balance the richness of the meat.
