Beer and Boar!
I’ve been basically on my feet since 8 am helping at Beer and Boar at Alley Kat today, beginning with a little setting up and even spending time in the kitchen prepping salads and being a nice hostess. The Slow Food people are super-nice, and are understandably concerned about everyone having great food and a good time, and it was fun to be part of that. Here is the story, in pictures:
The boar, which had been cooking for four hours when I got there at 8 am. It was served at 2 pm, so imagine!
Breads from Treestone. Beautiful!
Preparing giant salads in the kitchen at nearby Transcend Coffee.
Earl, the Hog Wild man, with the boar almost ready to serve.
Carving the hog.
My plate! Five salads: green (from Greens Eggs and Ham) with vinaigrette, cucumber (yogurt/herb), tomato (herb vinaigrette), and coleslaw, and marinated mushrooms. Boar with amazing mustard (I have to ask where they got it. So good!)
Where salads go to die.
