SLAB OF CONFIT SUCKLING PIG

The original, since 2005
Exquisitarium began making the slab of suckling pig from the very start, in 2005, with piglets from Segovia, weighing less than 8 kg and carefully de-boned to keep the skin on the meat. We continue to do so today, with the same care. With the skin on one side of the slab, it is easier to serve crunchy. Quality makes the difference.

EXQUISITARIUM AWARDED CERTIFICATION FOR MANUFACTURE OF GLUTEN-FREE PRODUCTS

ES-344

Exquisitarium would like to let you know that after a period of adaptation and hard work, we have been awarded gluten-free certification for a wide range of our products.

Pulled Pork with barbecue sauce, one of the most well-known recipes, is originally an American dish but it is now popular all over the world.
