What to serve at a Hogswatch dinner?

Postby LilMaibe » Thu Mar 22, 2012 5:58 pm

As the title states.
Concidering inviting some friends this year for New Year's eve to celebrate Hogswatch. With a dinner of course.
Need to learn to cook the dishes first of course.
So, what to traditionally serve?

(what I can cook: medallion of pork fillet in cognacsauce, crispy roasted pork with mustard crust)

That just freaks me out.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Not at all - a sugar pig would be perfect for a Hogswatch feast - and very traditional. We've had sugar pigs from the Hogfather's assistant at Wincanton's Hogswatch celebrations. ;)
