Tickets On Sale Now For La Tuade de Cochon, Part Deux


If the Kensington Quarters’ Instagram feed is any indication, we’re getting very close to experiencing meaty, pasture-raised goodness at the much anticipated butcher counter, bar, and restaurant opening tomorrow in Fishtown.

For many, the event that introduced butcher Bryan Mayer to Philadelphia was Wyebrook Farm’s first La Tuade du Cochon–an opportunity for bacon lovers to confront their crimes and their passions, and one that the farm is reprising this year, on November 16. The event will be a start to finish hoof-to-table dining experience. That’s right, a heritage hog, slaughtered, bled, scalded, and butchered (as professionally and respectfully as possible), and then memorialized in a meal by chef Andrew Wood of Russet.

There are a few spots remaining for this year’s event. Class and dinner are $125 per person (includes tax and gratuity). Secure your place at the table by e-mailing: And, in the meantime, we have the menu.
