Bristol’s River Cottage Canteen is hosting a unique dining experience, The Whole Hog, on Wednesday 2nd October at 6.30pm and 8pm, with special guest speaker Steve Lamb.
The Whole Hog event focuses on the River Cottage ethos of using the entire animal, a practice that is firmly in place across the Canteen’s seasonal, local, organic and wild food menu.
Diners will enjoy a delicious 3 course set menu designed by Canteen head chef Mark Stavrakakis and his team, whilst Steve Lamb presents how you can use more unusual parts of the pig, using a real pig head to demonstrate on.
Steve Lamb, head of brand at River Cottage HQ is a regular on the popular River Cottage TV series and a charismatic presenter. He talks here about the concept behind the evening:
“The Whole Hog is a fantastic evening where people will learn about and taste different cuts of pork. At River Cottage we believe in engaging and informing people about the food they eat, whilst also preparing tasty and distinctive dishes. We look forward to welcoming our regular guests and invite those who have yet to eat at the Canteen to come and try something a bit different and as the saying goes; ‘eat everything but the oink.’”
Booking is essential for the evening, with two sittings at 6.30 and 8pm. The 3 course set menu will showcase some of the best parts of the pig.
