Pig Roast Party

Ideally someone would come and DIY-it for me! If you're looking for a gig...

As for pig size, I'd be happy to go for a bigger one and deal with the leftovers!!

Pig Roast Party

Ideally roasted in the backyard...but if that is too expensive/difficult, I'm happy to have the roasted guy delivered. Thanks!

Pig Roast Party

Hi,
I am dreaming of throwing a 30th bday party with a big pig roast in my backyard. I see a few threads on here regarding this but with mixed reviews for Outback Catering and Eva Lechon. Wondering if anyone has advice on the best way to handle this event? I have 25 people, and want the best tasting food of course...but also help with delivery and serving would be ideal...

Thanks in advance!

Paris in May - Seeking Advice

Thanks Souphie for the reply!

It is Chez George rue du Mail in fact, so I suppose my suspicions were right that it may be too similar to Chez Denise. Any preference between the two?
I am skeptical on L'Ami Louis myself - was recommended to me by an important person in the food business, but seems awfully expensive.

Maybe Denise, mon vieil ami, avant gout would be a better monday, tuesday, wednesday?

Or Denise, Josephine, Avant Gout?

Taillevent just because I have always wanted to go there and thought it a good choice for a traditional french splurge. You disagree?

Paris in May - Seeking Advice

I am planning 5 nights in Paris with my boyfriend. We love food, but are not looking for haute cuisine every night (except one last evening perhaps in Taillevent...) Good bistro food, warm setting are the best in Paris in my opinion

Seeking advice on the following itinerary options from fellow foodies

Sunday - Fountaine de Mars; Mon Vieil Ami; Reminet

Monday - Chez Denise; Chez George

Tuesday - Les Papilles; Pre Verre; L'Avant Gout

Wednesday - L'ami Louis

Looking also for enough variety (for instance, are Chez Denise and Chez Georges and L'avant gout all too similar to do three night in a row??)
Any help/thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Love this site, thanks!
