Authentic Spanish suckling pig is a traditional dish cooked in Spain since medieval times. Typically, the best Spanish suckling pigs come from the Segovia region, where a quality control label has been developed from the area in order to ensure that all suckling pigs follow a strict control process. This seal with the brand ‘Cochinillo de Segovia’ provides you the guarantee that the origin, birth and breeding methods have fully satisfied a regulatory body that ensures all farms maintain consistency over the quality of their piglets. Here in the UK, our suckling pigs remain one of our best sellers.
In Spain, roasted suckling pig is traditionally served whole at the table with a salad of iceberg lettuce and spring onion dressed with cider vinegar and extra virgin olive oil and of course a bottle of good quality wine. A young fruity red or a white wine will go really well but I prefer a chilled bottle of cava. The bubbles and acidity of the cava will cut really well through the suckling pig’s milky flavour.
Alongside the whole suckling pig, we also sell a beautiful boneless joint, for your convenience.
