'THE PIG: 500 Miles of Food, Friends and Local Legends' our second book has hit the shelves!

A lot has happened in the three years since we published our first book! Three new PIGs and of course a global pandemic to contend with…it has certainly not been boring!

THE PIG’s second book is a celebration of the counties we call home, the unique produce and flavours associated with them and the exceptional cast of characters that make up the broader PIG family. Journey through the eight chapters – one per hotel and across 500 miles from Cornwall to Kent – and get to know a few more of our most valued artisan friends, the new generations of farming families reinventing themselves, a potted history of each of our much-loved buildings, and a peek ‘backstage’ into the lives of the unsung heroes of hospitality. Of course there are plenty of PIG recipes, gardening tips and tricks and chats with our PIG teams too!

Printed in East Sussex, with colour production in Cornwall, on paper using made at Aberdeen’s Stoneywood Mill using water from the River Don, the book’s provenance reflects our obsessive commitment to reducing our footprint, caring for and protecting the environment and supporting our local communities.

THE PIG Book on Tour

Relaxed pop-up talks, with a couple of glasses of THE PIG Cut wine, hosted by some of our local friends!

This summer THE PIG team will be travelling 500 miles from Cornwall to Kent, stopping off in a few of our favourite local watering holes and shopping hotspots along the way, to celebrate the launch of our new book, THE PIG: Food, Friends & Local Legends.

Each pop up will see a few of our PIG people, joined by one of our local friends or suppliers, telling tales of the places we call home and why we think they are so special! Celebrating the county they are speaking in, they will take you on a journey from the Kitchen Garden to the plate, dropping in on a few local legends enroute and exploring the flavours that can only be found within 25-miles!
