Fall is definitely in the air and to celebrate the satisfying flavors of Texas’ autumn bounty, Sustenio at the Éilan Hotel, Resort & Spa is hosting a Fall Harvest Pig Roast on Saturday, November 9. The evening will feature exquisite dishes crafted by celebrity Chef Stephan Pyles, paired with fabulous tequila concoctions from author Lucinda Hutson. Hutson’s book, Viva Tequila! Cocktails, Cooking, and Other Agave Adventures, is a fun-filled journey through the world of tequila. The meal’s centerpiece will be a whole, roasted suckling pig from Loncito Cartwright of Twin Oaks Ranch. A true old-time Texas rancher of the first order, Cartwright breeds grass-fed, hormone- and antibiotic-free pigs, lambs and cows at his family’s Twin Oaks Ranch just south of San Antonio in Dinero, Texas.
Hutson, a nationally celebrated food, spirits, garden, lifestyle writer/lecturer and renowned tequila aficionada, shares her more than 30 years of experiences traveling through Mexico’s agave country in her latest book, Viva Tequila!, and will share some of those experiences and insights during the dinner.
Hutson also wrote The Herb Garden Cookbook, now in its Second Edition and 26th year of publication and Tequila! Cooking with the Spirit of Mexico, an out-of-print collectible written in 1995, far ahead of the today’s tequila renaissance.
Sustenio’s Fall Harvest Pig Roast will begin with al fresco appetizers and a Mexican Harvest Punch, a spicy gingered apple punch with pomegranate seeds and tequila reposado, served on Sustenio’s patio, then move indoors for an unforgettable three-course meal complete with a whole hog from Loncito Cartwright paired with wine and spirits. The harvest dinner begins at 7 p.m. and is $75 per person. Contact Sustenio at 210-598-2950 today to reserve your place in this not-to-be-missed dinner event. $75 per person
