A taste of veld raised pork

Most pigs and chickens, more than any other animals, are raised in large overcrowded farm factories, pumped full of growth hormones and antibiotics, to grow faster.  Fortunately there are alternatives. For the past two years Wickedfood  Earth has been farming with totally free-range pigs.  Our pigs live in large low-density outdoor camps where they are encouraged to forage.  They never receive growth hormones and are only treated with antibiotics if sick.  They grow much slower than factory-raised pork, and the taste is in the meat.

From time to time Wickedfood Cooking School runs special  5-course dinner events.  In collaboration with Wickedfood  Earth we are once again going to be running a series of taste experiences over the next few months.  The first event is  A taste of veld raised pork

For our first special  5-course dinner event at Wickedfood Cooking School, Sunninghill, you not only get to taste this great pork, we will be sharing the secrets of how to best prepare the different parts of the pig.  This will be an interactive sit-down dinner as opposed to a hands-on cooking class.  At the end of the evening, we will also have limited cuts of pork for sale.

When: Coming soon, contact the school for more details.

Where: Wickedfood Cooking School, Sunninghill

Cost: R250pp (drinks not supplied, please bring your own)
