Oink. Did you hear that? I sure did. ~BAR BAMBINO~ is hosting a special dinner in celebration of La Quercia Farm's Acorn Edition pig! Yes, the pig has an edition. For more information on La Quercia's Acorn Edition pig, see the La Quercia website. The Des Moines Register also has an article on the project.
This year, for the first time in its history, La Quercia Farms in Norwalk, Iowa (a family-run farm dedicated to the sustainable production of artisanal cured meats) has reserved fifty heirloom, acorn-fed Berkshire pigs for select purveyors. Bar Bambino has been selected as a featured restaurant (other SF locations include A16, Boulevard, and Ducca).
Executive chef Elizabeth Binder has created a six-course tasting menu that showcases every cut of the Acorn Edition pig not reserved for curing. Wines will also be paired with the meal. Seating is limited, so please contact Ryan at 415-701-VINO (8466) for further details and to reserve your place.
