How to Prepare Pig's Head
A Vegetarian’s Nightmare
No one feasts quite like a farmer – especially at Christmas time. The Tudors were no exception. Feasting was at the heart of Christmas celebrations during the Tudor era (1485 – 1603). From plum pottage to mince pies and puddings, there was plenty to fill your belly. But the main attraction was boar’s head.
For those who’d like to join us in reviving this classic dish, we put together a recipe by watching the pros in action on Tudor Farm Christmas. (All the quoted stuff in the recipe comes from this Christmas special.) What the recipe lacks in precision, we hope it makes up for in charm.See Recipe
