The pigs are getting fat, and the next Creole boucherie is in the works.
Don’t know what a boucherie is? Well, Urban Dictionary defines it as “a party distinguished by consumption of mass quantities of food, beer, soft drinks and hard liquor.” In other words, food and fun.
It all begins at 11 a.m. Feb. 8 at Vintage Heart Farm, which is providing the pigs. You’ll also get demonstrations from John Russ of Lüke San Antonio, Pieter Sypesteyn of the Cookhouse and Where Y’At, Diego Galicia and Rico Torres from Mixtli, and Heather Nanez from Bohanan’s with guest appearances from other San Antonio chefs. Cocktails will be under the care of Jesse Torres from Mixtli and Mezcaleria Mixtli.
“We will kick off the day with a traditional grit and grillades brunch,” an announcement of the event says. “Throughout the day our chefs will be demonstrating how to make classic recipes using the whole pig. Our Sunday afternoon supper begins at 3 p.m. featuring a collection of dishes that our chefs have demonstrated.”
The boucherie will be taking place outside on a working farm, so plan and dress accordingly.
Vintage Heart Farm is at 1700 CR 332, Stockdale.
Tickets are $150 for adults or $75 for children under 10, plus processing fee. For tickets click here.
