Swine! It’s Fine and It’s Sunday

swineSouth Texas Heritage Pork will host its second annual Fine Swine Cook-Off and Flavor Fest on Sunday at its farm, which is at 4268 County Road 404, Floresville.

Each team will include five students currently enrolled in a culinary program and an instructor. Among the teams will be three from San Antonio: The Art Institute of America, The Culinary Institute of America and the San Antonio Food Bank Culinary Program.

The Groove Factory will provide the music while three food trucks — DUK Truck, Say.She.Ate and Where Y’At — will be on site.  There will also be a Pie Eating Contest featuring pies from Ms. Chocolatier.

General admission tickets are $35 and include entry, parking, live music, pie eating contest, tastings and spectator for the competition. Cash bar for general admission will include Alamo Beer, Guadalupe Beer and St. Arnold’s.

VIP tickets are $75 and include upgraded tastings, VIP parking and seating located near the judging table as well as Ranger Creek Beer and Pedernales Wines.

The fun begins at 2 p.m. Sunday.
