Acclaimed chef Phil Vickery and award-winning butcher Simon Boddy are extremely knowledgeable of the pork industry, and they truly understand the integrity of safekeeping good pork taste, whether it is through embracing the variety of breeds and their unique flavors or through the different cooking methods.
