The three little pigs

sold out

Once upon a time there were three little pigs. The neat nose found the first one, a delightful hog roast with rosemary and apple sauce. There were toffee apples, smoked mackerels and wet charred wood. The second little pig was barbecued with apricots on the nose but tasted of crackling and maple cured bacon. Then came herbal notes, a sweet peat and burnt marshmallows. Water brought out old cigar smoke and foie gras on melba toast, and then the third little pig - stewed tenderly with honey and hoisin sauce. The smoky palate was both salty and sweet with a wonderful mouthfeel. And the big bad wolf lived happily ever after
