On Thursday 11th June, Ed Hick of Hick & Sons Irish craft butchers will host a pop-up pork fest in KC Peaches Wine Cave on Nassau Street. Hick has become known in Ireland for his passion for well-raised meat, and his love of one animal (the pig!) in particular is illustrated by his best known products.
KC Peaches, who have been buying Ed's excellent pork products for years, have teamed up with the butcher to present a night in celebration of the pig, whose value and deliciousness is sometimes under-appreciated when compared to beef or lamb in Ireland. Hick will lay on a smorgasbord of unusual cuts, including 'lachs schinken' (cured loin) and lardo (fat) from a single organic sow, along with spiced pork brisket and slow roast pork neck. Guests will also enjoy the aromas of the indoor spit roast, which is being brought in especially to do justice to Hick's gently smoke-cured 'bacon' ribs.
The menu will be as follows:
Braised pork neck broth served with Parmesan crouton and wild garlic creme fraiche
Ham hock terrine, pea puree, crispy quails egg
Hick's charcuterie plate (smoke-cured ham, lachs schinken and lardo from a single organic sow) served with bacon jam and Bretzel bread
Gently smoke-cured ribs (grilled table side) served with red cabbage and beetroot slaw
Spiced pork brisket served with baby veg, apple & hazelnut stuffing, roasted potatoes
Iced summer berries with white chocolate ganache
All this delicious food will cost just €35 per person. To make a reservation, please contact the Wine Cave on (087) 984 5929 or email firstname.lastname@example.org (ask for Emilie).
