Parcent pork nape
Explanation:
As Phil says, Parcent is a place in Alicante, but "mogote" is a cut of pork, also known as "cabezada". It's the back of the neck, at the top (front) of the back, if you follow me. In English it's various called nape, neck or collar; I think these are all the same cut and you could use whichever you think sounds best. It may be ibérico, but if they don't say so you'd better not say so either.

The word could be a variant of "cogote"; I don't know.

"El mogote o cabezada del lomo es la parte anterior del lomo . Es un exquisito corte de unos 450 gramos con mucha grasa intramuscular e intermuscular idónea para prepararla a la brasa, plancha, frita o asada. [...]"

It may be a typically Alicante word, or dish; it's mentioned here in a page on Alicante cuisine:
"Mogote de cerdo ibérico"

I think "aguja" is another name for the same cut, and "cabecero" is another, as a variant of "cabezada".

They call it "collar" here:

And here collar, cabecero and French échine are equated (click on the pig):

  -> Thank, Jane!

agree  neilmac: I might order collar, but for some reason that remains a mystery, I find "nape" unappetising...

  -> "Nape" sounds a bit more exotic, perhaps, but I must admit I'm leaning towards "collar" too. Thanks, Neil :-)
