Cochinillo is a traditional spanish roast suckling pig that is extraordinarily tender meat using a three to four weeks old organic and natural feed piglet.
Suckling pig meat is very interesting from a nutritional standpoint: it has less fat than an adult pig, around 40% less, with the result that it does not increase cholesterol levels. Its meat is pink or pale red, and it has a fresh smell, like a young, unweaned animal.
This is a great centerpiece dish to your party or even as for grazing table setup that will impress your guests.
Do the traditional carving of the cochinillo by using the edge of the plate to cut off the pig. That's how tender it is!
