Pig Roast - Chaine des Rotisseurs



I belong to the Chaine des Rotisseurs and in January 2011 the Hartford Chapter held a medieval pig roast. I of course dressed up in medieval costume! It was a delightful evening of fine food and delicious wines at the Hartford Club.

After a reception including sparkling wine and mead with sweetbreads, liver, and other treats we moved on to the sit-down part of the evening.

We were arranged in a "round table" and were treated to a reading of poetry before we began.

We began with a turtle soup gumbo.

This dinner was paid for me by my mother as a birthday treat; I was not provided free access or compensation for any part of it.
