Nothing could be finer than pork and cider – and August 29 is a celebration of both the suckling pig and refreshing pome fruits.
The Manjimup Gateway Hotel is playing host to a Pork and Cider Day, kicking off at midday, with free entry to the function.
With pulled pork burgers, slow-cooked pork from pig-on-the-spit and premium apple and pear ciders from across the region, the function is designed to celebrate the unique happy marriage of flavours.
Pork and Cider Day is a chance to indulge in the succulence of pork meat, matched with the crisp, refreshing taste of cider.
The popularity of cider has increased dramatically in recent years, from just over one in 50 people drinking it each month in 2008 to now almost one in 10,” she said.
And with shows such as MasterChef and My Kitchen Rules highlighting how versatile pork is, utilising different parts of the pig for an array of recipes, it’s not hard to see why Homer Simpson’s favourite meat has grown in appeal.
Pork is a sweeter tasting meat, which makes cider the perfect accompaniment, given it’s also a sweet, tangy beverage.
Please note that Pork and Cider Day is an 18-plus adults-only function.
WHEN: Sunday 29 August, 12.00 - 6.00pm
