Off to the Pig Roast!

First, I'd like to raise my glass to all the State Fair award winning swine (like Fred, below) who have sacrificed their cracklings for my dining enjoyment.

We're heading off to a Spanish pig roast this evening. And we are pretty excited about it. I can't think of a better thing to do on a lovely, (almost) fall day! The menu was released, and it looks like a doozy.
Gazpacho
Blood Sausage
Potato, Crispy Garlic and Spinach Tortilla
Roasted Cauliflower with Red Pepper Aioli
Roasted Pig with Romesco Sauce and Salsa Verde
Roasted Apples with Churros and Dulce de Leche

The event was a Braise on the Go event, sponsored by Slow Food (Wisconsin SE) and held at Pinehold Gardens and Farm. Pinehold is a 21-acre farm just south of Milwaukee (in Oak Creek) that is owned and operated by David Kozlowski and Sandra Raduenz. Though not certified organic, the farm uses sustainable agricultural practices, and places an emphasis on education. They run a fabulous CSA, and supply lots of great foods to families in the Milwaukee area.

We're doubly excited because the pig roast features delicious libations from our friends at Lakefront Brewery. Lakefront not only brews up some of the best beer around, but they have THE best brewery tour available in Milwaukee (sorry Miller-Coors!).

As the advertisement for the event stated: Nothing says lovin' like crispy pig and a cold beer.

We'll be dining alfresco, so pray for fantastic weather!
