Pop Up Dinner with Salted Pig Recap!

Our Pop Up Dinner with Salted Pig was an incredible success!
With Johnny Cash crooning in the background, a SOLD OUT crowd of guests enjoyed a five course meal infused with pork and a LOT of love. 

The Dining Room was Buzzing!
Due to rainy weather the greeting Course was in the Sun Porch & Parlor, but the Crispy Chicharron Slider certainly was a bright spot on the dreary day! The crisp, the crunch!


Three Cheers for Chicarron

Guests were greeted by Chef Justin Rakes in the Main Dining Room. He introduced the concept behind Salted Pig as a fun and interactive restaurant that encourages shared plates and experimentation with fun flavors and delicious dishes.

After the delectable Deep Fried Brussel Sprouts with Red Eye Aioli, Adam from Mutual Distributing discussed the wine and beer pairings while Chef Martin plated the Sunset Ridge Bison Tartare with Kewpei Mayo, Spiced Cucumber & Nasturtium.

 Colin from The King's Daughters Inn introduced the venue and discussed plans for their new project, The Mayton Inn, over family style plates of Cut Pork Chops with Charred Ramp and Shallot Gravy accompanied by a Herb Salad.

Pre-Plated Delicious CHOPS!
The Dessert Course was a Roasted Banana Budino, salted NC peanuts, candied bacon served in a mason jar served with a Sauternes.

Sweet Sauternes to Finish
We were so pleased to host Salted Pig and can not wait to join them at their brick and mortar restaurant in Fall of 2013!

Stay tuned for our next Pop Up dinner in early June!!
