Pello Chorizo Fresco

Free-range heirloom porks. Raw sausage packed with flavor. Slow Food.


All Pello's charcuteries are made from his own “Euskal Txerria” breed of pigs. They are adorable looking animals; big easy-going black pigs with enormous, floppy ears that fall over their eyes! At Pello’s they roam freely in the fields and under the century old trees, gorging on the nuts and seeds. Such happy pigs make superlative meat! Pello's Fresh Chorizo is a mildly spicy uncooked ground meat sausage. It is packed with flavor and it is one of those secret ingredients that makes for no-effort cooking, instantly adding depth and complexity to anything it is cooked with.

How to use

Pello's Fresh Chorizo must be cooked before eating. You can grill or bake it in thick slices and serve it as a tapas. Alternatively crumble it to aromatise all kind of dishes: add chorizo to a heated pan and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until crisp and lightly charred, about 10 minutes; drain any excess oil if necessary. It will go exceptionally well with all kind of potatoes, beans or eggs dishes

Quick tips

What about Pello


The happiest pigs in the world! And you can taste it!

Getting to Pello's farm is no easy quest, as it is hidden away among the wood covered hills, along a winding and steep road next to a small village. After asking quite a few people we are getting closer and meet Marcelino, a 94 year old farmer who lives a few hundred meters away. He chats happily with us: “We don’t get many people around here” he says, so he keeps us a bit longer, chit chatting about his grandsons.
