When it comes to roast whole suckling pig, there is no finer meat in the world than the traditional Spanish Cochinillo.
The soft and tender meat literally melts in the mouth whilst the crispy crackling will delight the senses with every forkful of this incredible delicacy. Unlike many of the commercially reared animals that you will find elsewhere, our whole suckling pigs are always kept with their mothers up to a maximum of 21 days. This is the only farming method that stays true to the traditional practices from which the name suckling pig was derived. Keeping things natural also delivers meat with the finest flavour and texture.
HOW TO DEFROST: Place your whole suckling pig in the refrigerator to begin the thawing process. After a couple of hours, you will be able to remove the packaging and allow the suckling pig to defrost at a temperature between 2-4º C, for 12 to 24 hours.
A minimum of 3 months from shipment
Delivered frozen, we’ll packaged. From a 5kg pig, once cooked, I think there was probably 5lbs of edible meat and crackling, once you remove the bones, skull and trotters. It doesn’t seem that much, but this is a delicacy, to be eaten at special occasions ! And I must say, it was delicious ! I must have eaten 3lbs of it myself, once I took it out of the oven. I kept picking at it and couldn’t stop until I was stuffed ! Also, it was lovely cold ! This was my first suckling pig, as ide always wanted to try one,so for my 62nd b,day, I treated myself ! I know it’s quite expensive, but I think now and then, it’s worth it. Thank You.
We ordered a 5kg suckler, but the one that arrived was 9kg.
Normally this would be great, but it only just fitted into our oven!
That said, the pig was delicious.
Tasty melt in the mouth meat, and superb crackling.
The company gave us all the advice we needed and the meat was delivered on the day they said. Only one slightly negative comment. I think we paid the advertised price on the website which also said we would get a 10% discount.
Did a roast suckling pig. Nice and juicy.
The baby suckling pig was so clean and of high quality standard. I received it on the date I requested to be delivered. We enjoyed it.
