Feast On A Home Grown Pig Named King Arthur at Northeast Kingdom
For the past ten months Brooklyn's Northeast Kingdom has been raising their own pig, named King Arthur. Hopefully they didn't get too attached because on August 10 they are cooking Arthur and having a nose-to-tail feast. Chef Kevin Adey will be serving 23 courses (appetizers, entrees, and desserts) all made from the pig, with zero waste.
Adey has invited other local restaurants to help out with cooking, serving, and drinks. An estimated 40 people in Brooklyn will be assisting Adey will the pig roast.
From the restaurant blog:
"So what to save from arthur? A 18 month dry cured ham is a must! Maybe a pepperoni, pizza could never taste so good. Tasso ham with a spicy kick? I could go on for days, let me know what you think in the comments. No matter what we choose to age, these tasty bits will be a long lasting reminder of our pig, and I can't think of any better way of honoring his life than this."
Tickets are on sale now for $130 and that includes everything: wine, beer, cocktails, tax, and tip. There will be two seatings, 5pm and 9pm. Reservations can be made by calling Northeast Kingdom at 718-386-3864 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
