It’s my birthday! And since it was a milestone birthday the husband bought me a whole suckling pig and I invited some friends for a porkfest. The pig is marinated in dark beer, then rotisserie-cooked for 7 hours on a wood-fire spit.
There were some snacks while we waiting for the pig to finish up, bread and pretzels with dips and also these golden fried button mushrooms served with pickled gherkin aioli.
The chef then carves and serves plate after plate of deliciously juicy pork, I mean look at this! And the skin! Blistered and golden it was just incredible. The pig is served with sides as well, there was potato salad, pickles, chips, horseradish and mustards galore.
I was worried there wouldn’t be enough food so had ordered the meter long sausage with cabbage and also had to try the free range roasted half duck but honestly the pig is more than enough for 25 people.
And then cake time with a beautiful lemon dream cake from Flour and Stone. We had amazing weather and I truly feel so happy to be able to eat and drink with everyone, this is Tommys Beer Café in Glebe
