Bonkers for bacon? Pining for pork belly? If so, you'll go hog wild over the Austin Food & Wine Alliance's 2nd annual Wine & Swine, a pigerrific event being held this Sunday, November 4th, at Pioneer Farms. 18 chefs will each be preparing a whole, locally-raised pig to use in a pork-forward dish for attendees to taste (check out the drool-inducing chef lineup and menu here). In addition to the pork tastings, there will be live music; wine, cocktails and craft brews; farm tours (via hayride!); photo booth fun, and butchery and sausage-making demos - all included in the ticket price of $75 ($95 at the door). The proceeds from this event support the Alliance's culinary grant program.
My friends at the Alliance have very generously shared a pair of tickets to Wine & Swine with me to give away to a lucky reader! You can get up to three entries, one entry for each of the following:
1. Leave a comment below naming your favorite of the chefs participating in Wine & Swine (make sure you include a way to contact you if you win!);
2. Tweet, "Enter to win a pair of tickets to @ATXFoodWineAlly's Wine & Swine from @foodiethenew40: http://bit.ly/UgWVFI". Then let me know in the comments that you've done so (please include your Twitter handle!).
3. "Like" my blog's Facebook page and let me know in the comments here that you've done so.
Entries will close at 7:00 p.m. CST on Thursday, November 1st, and I'll pick the winner that night. May the pork be with you!
