The rib bone on each of these chops has been “frenched”— scraped clean for an extra elegant presentation that befits Kurobuta’s high status among the world’s finest pork. Kurobuta Pork comes from pure-bred Berkshire pigs, a heritage breed that dates to the 1600s. Kurobuta has intense marbling and a richer flavor than conventional pork, which has long been bred for reduced fat content. Call it the unconventional pork. You’ll taste the difference.
