    Hog and Barrel Dinner

    I was browsing a local website and came across this flyer:



    here's the blurb:

    The Hog and The Barrel Dinner will feature three 300-pound locally raised English black pigs showcased alongside fine Van Winkle Bourbons. Before sitting down for the main event, diners will be treated to an intimate reception with Julian Van Winkle, featuring inspired swine snacks and bourbon and cocktail tastings. The six-course feast will begin with Chef Michael Paley taking diners through the hog's head, neck, and shoulders. Highlights include Coppa di testa (crispy ears, chicory, Brussels sprouts, grapefruit & cacao roma) and Corned Picnic Tortellini (pork neck brodo, scallion, sauerkraut). For the back, middle, and ham, acclaimed Chicagan Paul Kahan will take the reigns, giving diners a taste of the creativity that has earned Kahan multiple James Beard recognitions.

    At $81, it's a bit out of my budget.

    Wow, much fancier than a pulled pork dinner, which is what I expected when I first saw the picture.

    Very nice.

    It may be implied but I did not here the Pig's feet mentioned.

    I would gladly take them all.
