Hog Roast

Hi everyone,

We're looking to host a lot of people for an event and thought we might try a hog roast. I have two questions:

1. Are there in any good companies in the Basel/Hesinque region that would come and roast the hog for us?

2. If not, and we have to do it ourselves, can anyone recommend a good butchers to order the pig from?

Many thanks.

Re: Hog Roast

I don't live near Basel, so I can't suggest a butcher, but I think most would be able to help you. Not only with a pig, but some also rent the powered spit/grill thing. FYI, a roast whole pig is called a Spanferkel and they're heavenly.

Look in the telephone book for your local Schlachthof or abattoir. that''s the best place to order it. I got a 10 KG sucking pig from the Zürich one around 5 years ago. it was CHF 200 then

I found three suitable in Basel http://tel.search.ch/index.de.html?w...hthof&wo=basel
