Our first pop-up; #winnerwinnerchickendinner

We spent last week 'popping-up' in our Askew Road shop, turning our butchers shop into a restaurant by filling it with tables, chairs, guests, glasses, crockery, cake stands and more. Guests enjoyed a six-course surprise menu, which celebrated the arrival in the shops of our 100-day chickens. Here's a flavour of what went on.

Rillettes, scratchings, 'bread and butter' pickle

Broth with watercress, peas and parsley
Ravioli, with asparagus and a butter sauce
Coq au vin, boulagere potatoes

Cheese, crispbreads made near the farm
There was a beautiful dessert too, made by Sarah on our Yorkshire Farm, but it was so popular we're serving it again at our two pop-up events in Hackney this week, and don't want to spoil the surprise.

Think you might fancy coming to a future dinner-in-a-butchers-shop? Email enquiries@thegingerpig.co.uk with the subject field 'mailing list' and we'll be sure to let you know about future events and new meaty things in general...but definitely, definitely no spam.
