The Boucherie 2015

The Boucherie 2015

We hope that everyone had a great holiday season and that y’all are looking forward to a year of fantastic parties! Our first event of the year, on February 8th, is our second annual boucherie which will take place at Vintage Heart Farm. This will be an unforgettable event; from the picturesque farm setting to the award winning chefs to the amazing food cooked over open fires- you can’t get any more farm to table than this! The boucherie is a day long event, including demos and meals, in which the chefs will turn a whole pig, tail to snout, into multiple dishes. Admission includes demos and meals beginning with a brunch and concluding with a family style Sunday supper at 3 PM. Wine, beer, water and coffee will also be served throughout the day.

About Alamo City Provisions:
Alamo City Provisions is a group of San Antonio chefs that we have been working with since last year. Previously we worked with ACP on a five part dinner series that ran August 2014-December 2014.

About Vintage Heart Farms:
The pigs that we will be serving will be coming from Vintage Heart Farm, also the location of the Boucherie. Vintage Heart Farm is owned and farmed by a lovely couple, Ashley and Roger. They believe in doing things the “old fashioned” way, especially when it comes to raising their meat. The pigs produced for this event are heritage breeds that are pastured.
