Awe shucks, it's a Pig Roast!!

To celebrate independence day Muss & Turner's had a whole pig roast, 5 course menu. Having had chef's tasting menu dinners there before, we were really excited about this one.

To start off the first course was heirloom tomato salad with Tasso ham, cucumber, red onion, arugula, cilantro, and avocado vinaigrette:

Perfect fresh start... On to second course, grilled Apalachicola oysters, pork belly, spicy pique:

No words could properly give justice, hands down best oysters I have ever had!!

For third course had a Brunswick stew with rabbit, pork shoulder, tomato, corn, and lima beans:

Great flavor, and nice to have a different taste with the addition of the rabbit... To go with the stew there was cornbread with black pepper bacon butter:

and yes, the butter was as good as it sounds, but then how can you go wrong combining butter and bacon...

Fourth course, and main entree, was the caja china roasted pork, coffee and molasses smoked beef brisket, mac n cheese, collards.

The pork was outstanding but have to say the brisket and the mac n cheese were amazing too, I am not a big collards fan so that was probably the one thing I wasn't crazy about.

To finish off the night the fifth and last course was dessert:
Peach Cobbler @ Muss & Turner's Inc

Peach cobbler, goat cheese ice cream, balsamic syrup and of course... bacon sprinkles! :)

What a perfect dinner to start celebrating the independence of this great country!!!
