I ate a great lunch yesterday, at Griffin steakhouse. It was a small press event with Scan, the biggest meat producer in Sweden. They talked about their new big thing: a pig fed with canola. This is originally a Finnish research project, and it results in a tender and flavorful pork that's also much higher in Omega-3 than regular pork. So basically - both tastier, and better for you!
It's just available for restaurants at the moment, but they plan to launch it for consumers next year. I might get to try a Christmas ham from this sort of pig this year - I'll report back, because I'm pretty excited about it.
