LA Chowhound PIG ROAST Menu

Dave Tanner (aka *Ice Cream Machine*) | Jul 2, 200412:21 AM

Well, some of the LA chowhounds got together last weekend and had
a pig roast. *David Kahn* provided a Caja China oven to roast with,
a lovely house, and, together with *russkar*, the pig in question.
Many others of us brought other dishes and items for a silent auction.
All proceeds (and there were a lot of them!) went to Chowhound and
an excellent time was had by all. But enough rambling. Here's the menu:
