Fresh Whole Suckling Pig - Serves 4
| US Only
One of our favorite restaurants in Segovia is Mesón de Cándido, an ancient tavern situated under a magnificent Roman aqueduct. For generations the family has roasted whole cochinillos (suckling pigs) in wood fired ovens. As the cochinillo is served, it is cut into portions with the side of a plate to demonstrate its tenderness. The golden skin is crisp and the melt-in-your-mouth pork is a revelation!
Now you can serve a fabulous cochinillo to your friends and family! Not only are these suckling pigs exceptionally young and tender, they are 100% noble Ibérico breed, famed for its mouthwateringly tender and flavorful pork. They are also raised with no hormones or antibiotics and are 100% milk fed.
Each whole suckling pig will arrive frozen and uncooked with its head on. They are completely cleaned and ready to cook. Before roasting, be sure to slowly thaw the cochinillo in the refrigerator over a day or two. Serves about 4 people. ¡Buen Provecho!
