This year's Park City Food and Wine Classic kicks off this Friday afternoon with the Main Street Stroll. For info on that all other Classic events, go here.
But go here later Friday evening if you want a full-on feast: Goldener Hirsch Inn (which wins the Mary Malouf award for quaintest inn in Deer Valley) is hosting Pork and Cork, starting about 7 p.m.
Gold-medal-winning winemaker Douglas McCombs, of Utah’s own Iron Gate Winery, and Goldener Hirsch Inn Executive Chef Ryan Burnham will be on hand pouring wine and cooking on the Inn’s beautiful patio overlooking Silver Lake Village.
They’ll be serving up two locally-raised Niman Ranch hogs, brined in local honey and aromatics then slow-roasted over a wood fire, alongside an array of fixins’ and sauces and sides. There will also be a chocolate fondue and decadent desserts – chocolates, griddled bacon-brown-sugar bread pudding and more – plus four selections from Iron Gate’s collection of wines, which have taken home gold and silver medals from the International Wine and Grand Harvest Wine competitions.
$95 per person includes food, wine, tax and gratuity. Call the Goldener Hirsch for reservations: 800-252-3373
I must add that the very same evening over at Solitude Mountain Resort, Wasatch Mountain Table presents Pig & Pinot. So it's definitely your night to go whole hog.
