Praise for the book:
‘For us at home, the cookbook provides the perfect inspiration.’ The Telegraph Magazine
Praise for The Pig Hotels:
Rick Stein: ‘Dinner, bed and breakfast at The Pig, any Pig, is a comforting thought of some lovely flavoured pork, a British abundance of vegetables and some fabulous red wine.’
The Sunday Times: ‘There isn’t a trace of cynicism here – just enthusiasm, craft and people who love what they do, creating a place you really, really don’t want to leave.’
The Financial Times ‘Some inherited memory of a weekend with grandparents I never had… a little bohemian, and unbelievably good at cooking.’
Tom Parker Bowles: ‘The Pig revolutionised the country house hotel, creating a true home away from home. No pomp or pretence, just beautiful rooms and magnificent food with produce from their own kitchen gardens. Where The Pig goes, the others follow.’
From the Publisher
Meet the co-founder of The Pig, Robin Hutson
The Pig opened in 2011 in the New Forest and became an instant hit. A more relaxed take on the country hotel, The Pig’s unique selling point was, and still is, its kitchen garden which remains at the heart of the hotel group.
Founded by Robin Hutson (who created Hotel du Vin and launched Lime Wood), his wife Judy Hutson (who is responsible for the interiors) and David
Elton, The Pig’s litter has grown to six, with more on the way. The hotels have won a fervently loyal following and a string of industry accolades.
