Pigheaded.

A glorious feast like no other, Pigheaded will be a celebration of swine from start to finish. Liam will produce a five-course meal with each dish using some pig. And each course aims to pair perfectly with the Alphabetical Red 2008, a lush, ripe blend of predominately Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon just released by Simon Wibberley and David Cope. The latter (pictured above with Liam) is better known as The Foodie, a food writer with an affection for bacon who describes the menu as, “Pretty much what I’d have if I had to choose a last meal.”

Liam has an affinity for cooking with pig, saying, “It’s such a versatile beast, you can do so much with it.” It’s the full-flavour and fattiness that gives it this versatility he speaks of and the menu of dishes on the night will showcase exactly this. Paired with the Alphabetical Red 2008, the menu will also show the ability of the wine to work with different flavours. A few surprises will be included on the drinks side too.

If you enjoy your swine and more than the odd glass of good red wine, this promises to be a night you’ll love.

Pork cheek rillette with deep fried pigs ears
