Wow! What an amazing night, the guinea hog dinner was a blast. This is the most unbelievable pig I’ve ever tasted or worked with. These pigs are simply spectacular to work with. Gra Moore supplied us with three pigs to do this dinner. We used every part of the pig in creating the menu for this dinner. For the hors d’oeuvres we made headcheese, pork liver mousse-pickled red onion, Capers Inlet Oysters-cucumber, crispy pancetta.
For dinner we made Ham and Egg with collards and bacon mayonaise. The farm egg was cooked for two and half hours and almost took the show on this course.
The main course was a pork lovers dream with rye braised shoulder with savoy cabbage and bourbon glazed honey crisp apple; Grilled loin with cumin-orange carrots; Belly with celery root-grits, smoked bacon jus.
The dessert was my mom’s shoo fly pie with buttermilk anglaise, candied ginger, whipped sorghum and pork puff dusted with powdered sugar, ginger and sea salt. The perfect fit to end the evening.
