Out of the taxi and the tantalizing aroma of pigs roasting on a traditional Asado (pit of fire) wafted across the courtyard outside Silo 6 and set the scene for an incredible evening of feasting and drinking from the kings of barbecue, Ben Milgate and Elvis Abrahanowicz.
Chefs and owners of famed Sydney restaurant Porteño, Ben and Elvis teamed up with Squealing Pig wines to deliver eight mouthwatering dishes served family-style alongside their famous 8 hour, slow cooked pork with the thinnest, crispest skin anyone could ever wish for.
Roasted cauliflower and lentils came doused with a rich tangy mustard dressing while the grilled eggplant and peppers had lashings of garlic and goat’s cheese. Decadent bowls of creamy polenta whipped to perfection with provolone and rosemary all came served with an award winning Squealing Pig Pinot Noir. Not for the faint hearted, this was awesome food, cooked from the heart and served in one of the most unique dining spaces in Auckland.
