July 16th 6-9pm at Tullibee in the North Loop
Those of you who have been members for a while know how much we love our special Forest Hogs. The once a year offering for our CSA members always sells out quickly to rave reviews. I have been hoping to organize a Forest Hog event for a while and I finally found the right team to pull it off.
I can't believe how good this menu looks. This will be the best dinner of the year:
Unlimited samples of selected wines ($20/person).
Basically, this is an intimate, private dinner party with some really unique and special food.
Join us for a strolling dinner celebrating the uniqueness of the rare heritage breed American Guinea Hog, aka "the Forest Hog". We raise these slow growing swine with care by in open pasture. They are never fed corn or soy and are known for their dark, richly flavored meat and delicious fat.
The team at Tullibee will be preparing charcuterie, roasts, pastries, and desserts showcasing the pristine protein versatility of this amazing pig. While large format roasts cook over the open hearth, guests will have the opportunity to engage with the chefs, farmer and butcher and will learn about the breed, what it takes to raise great pork and how it's skillfully prepared.
There will be an optional unlimited tasting wine glass for $20!
Hope to see you and your friends there!
