    Our answer to cochon de lait, porcelet is young, milk-fed piglet with unique flavor profile and extremely tender and delicate meat. This shoulder of porcelet can be slow cooked or roasted with tasty results.

    Additional Information

    Score through the rind on this porcelet shoulder and slow roast it until it practically melts. Then broil it briefly to make that skin crisp and crackle. The buttery pork texture with the contrast of the crispy skin will leave everyone asking for more.

    Available exclusively at D’Artagnan, porcelet is a favorite among our chef clients and is sure to be a hit with home cooks.

    What’s so special about it? The pig, above all animals, tastes the most like what it eats. So when piglets live on milk alone, they produce the most succulent pork imaginable.

    The milk-fed pig, called cochon de lait in French, is a long-standing tradition on dairy farms. Our porcelet is an improvement on that tradition. The young pigs are raised entirely on a proprietary milk formula (served warm) that is designed to nourish the pigs and put fat in all the right places.

    Even the most succulent of suckling pig has only a 17% moisture content, which cannot compare to the 30% moisture content of porcelet. And the porcelet grows larger, so there is more delicious pork to be enjoyed.

    The milk-fed pig, called cochon de lait in French, is a long-standing tradition on dairy farms. Excess milk, unwanted skim milk and whey are common on such farms, and pigs are more than willing to eat it all.

    Exclusively raised for D’Artagnan by a family-owned farm in Quebec which follows European protocols to ensure remarkable results. The Yorkshire breed piglets live in spacious barns and are nourished in a unique feeding program: they are fed a proprietary milk solution while maintaining a natural nursing rhythm. This diet allows them to thrive and grow for longer periods of time, growing larger than the average suckling pig, while maintaining tender texture. This is why porcelet de lait offers exquisite pork unrivaled by any other.

    Score right through the rind to help the fat render out and the skin to crisp. Porcelet shoulder can be slow roasted, and finished under the broiler for a brief period to make the most incredible layer of crackling.

    Our porcelet

    Porcelet is to pork as veal is to beef. Our milk-fed piglets are raised humanely on a family farm, and fed with a proprietary formula that produces the most tender and moist pork imaginable. There is nothing else like it on today’s market.
