The American chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain proclaimed the Filipino Lechon "the best roasted pig in the world"!

Lechon in Spanish means "Suckling Pig". Filipino Lechon is a whole suckling pig, slowly charcoal roasted and served during festivities such as Christmas and weddings.

The skin is crisp and caramelized while the meat inside is tender and juicy.

It is traditionally served with a rich liver sauce made of vinegar, sugar and herbs or a light soya sauce with a bit of vinegar and a dash of the local red chilli. Some also enjoy it with tomato ketchup.

Best wine pair for Filipino Lechon is a red wine!

Pork meat also pairs well with white wines, rosé and bubbles.
