Pig’s Head

£15.00

When it comes to home cooking, imagine a pig’s head as a food enhancer.  You can serve the pig’s head on its own, but it also adds a different dimension to anything that calls for pork or meat.

Pig’s head is most frequently cooked to make brawn, stocks and soups. Brawn is a cold cut of pork that is sourced from pig’s head and crafted into a terrine or meat jelly. All parts of the head are used, except the brain, eyes and ears.

Here are some of our favourite recipes featuring pig’s head:

  • Crispy pig head and Goan sausage with spiced apple chutney
  • Pressed pig’s head terrine with homemade mustard and pickles
  • Rolled pig’s head with langoustine and a crispy ear salad

We source local meat from farms in Wiltshire, Somerset and the South West. The Black Farmer makes sure that we get the absolute best and most sustainable breeds for the season. Our free range pigs feed on grass and lead happy lives in the great British countryside. By working with local produce and farmers, we promote and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. This reduces animal stress and lowers food miles as much as possible.
