National Roast Suckling Pig Day

We are sure you are waiting for National Roast Suckling Pig Day, because today you can cook a delicious dish from your favorite meat. Housewives who prefer delicacy have a win-win recipe that is praised by friends and family. Well, hurry to the kitchen and please those around you with a delicious dinner!


A suckling pig is an animal that has not yet been taken from its mother. It is believed that its meat has amazing tenderness. It does not compare with adult cattle – you can not try to fit other meat to the recipe. The person who has tried it will reveal the difference in a second. The delicacy costs a lot of money in good restaurants, but it is worth trying.

Another advantage is that meat does not harm the figure, because it does not have extra calories. Surprised? Piglets do not yet have time to gain weight and fat, so the layers are simply absent. Despite this, dishes from them turn out to be very juicy – there is not a hint of dryness here.

The researchers found the first similar recipes in the records of the cooks of ancient Rome and China. Many believe that the tradition of roasting a pig originated in Spain – the dish is called “Cochinillo asado”. You can try the delicacy in the taverns of Madrid and Segovia. The recipe is complex and unique, but it is unlikely that you will be told it in establishments!
