THE MORA ROMAGNOLA TO THE EDINBURGH FOOD FESTIVAL

The Edinburgh Food Festival has been one of the most awaited events of the Scottish capital since its debut in 2014.

Five days of culinary shows, debates and activities will enliven George Square Gardens and thousands of visitors from all over the United Kingdom, from 25th to 29th of July.

Rosa could not miss the appointment, presenting for the occasion one of the finest culinary delicacies of our region, the Mortadella Mora Mora, Slow Food Presidium.

The Mora Romagnola is a prized native pig breed that lives in the wild and feeds mainly on acorns and chestnuts, characteristics that make its meat unique.

Very bred in the provinces of Forlì and Ravenna, it is distinguished by a dark brown hair tending to black, with a particular almond cut of the eyes and very accentuated tusks.

With the advent of industrial farms it has been increasingly abandoned, passing from 22,000 specimens from 1949 to 18 of the early nineties. This mainly for two reasons: its slow growth and the highest percentage of fat that characterizes its meat compared to other pig breeds.

Thanks to the providential intervention of the Italian WWF and the University of Turin, a recovery plan for the breed has taken shape, which today has about 450 specimens.

The Slow Food Presidium is at the forefront for the protection of the species and the association of producers of the Presidium counts many breeders and processors.

Mora Romagnola has always been valued for the value of its meat, used in particular for the production of excellent quality meats, including the Mortadella Mora Mora, characterized by a strong taste, tasty and appetizing.

With its remarkable curriculum, our Mora Mora is ready to conquer Edinburgh and the Scottish palates!
