Suckling pig has become a big favourite at high-end restaurants like St John’s because not only does it taste amazing but there’s an element of theatre about producing the golden, glistening beast from the oven.  Like a Tudor feast.  It’s a great party piece.  The meat is ultra-tender and the thin, sweet crackling is stupendous.  It’s surprisingly easy to cook; we provide detailed instructions but essentially you roast it or barbecue on a spit.

Serve with our Apple Sauce with Cider Brandy and Pommes Chateaux Roasting Kit.

The piglet is around 40-45cm if trussed and fits diagonally into most domestic ovens

We also offer this delicacy with the body boned and rolled but the head left intact – equally impressive and a lot easier to carve.
