A while back some friends and I got inspired by some “Old World” traditions which lead to our Fete du Cochon. The photos are a little sensitive to post on the blog so I’ve never shared. During our research we found acclaimed chef Fergus Henderson and his first book ‘Nose to Tail Eating’. Fergus has a restaurant in London called St. John so while in town last week I had to check it out. Rachael and I really enjoyed it! We ate at the bar where the menu changes daily. Everything was amazing, I even got a signed copy of the first book!
