Pig Roast in Sacramento
Celebrating farmers and food in the Sacramento area, the Jubilee Farm Pig Roast is coming up on Saturday, May 12th at the Oak Park Farmers Market. The market starts at 9 a.m. with the pig roast following at 1 p.m.
Chef Brad Cecchi, Executive Sous Chef at The Grange in Sacramento is at the helm of the roast. His main attraction is a Berkshire Hog with vegetables, both from Jubilee Farm. In addition to the roast, a variety of other pork items is on the menu such as salumi, sausages, pate and bacon jam (yes, jam made with bacon). And vegetables from other area farms including Full Belly Farm and Farm Fresh To You are also joining in the fun.
Event beneficiaries are the Oak Park Farmers Market and Slow Food Sacramento, both great examples of dedication to preserving the farm to table movement and increasing local food access to the surrounding community.
I’m looking forward to the seducing smells of the variety of pork items available for consumption that day. And chef Cecchi didn’t forget the vegetarians. He’s preparing alternative grilled options for all to be had. Take a closer look at the details:
