Ham and cider lovers will want to make reservations for this dinner Monday at Chapel Hill’s Kitchen restaurant.
The five-course dinner features Lady Edison Hams, a partnership between Sam Suchoff of The Pig, a barbecue restaurant in Chapel Hill, and Rufus Brown of Johnston County Hams. The hams are made from North Carolina hogs, aged for at least 18 months and have a similar taste to Spanish serrano ham.
The meal also features ciders from northern Spain and the south of France, chosen by the folks at De Maison Selection, a Chapel Hill-based wine importer that specializes in French and Spanish wines.
Here is the menu:
• Cured ham crostini paired with Isastegi Sagardo 2013.
• Ham and white bean soup with Trabango Cosecha Propia 2012.
• Seared ham-wrapped sea scallop with Trabango Poma Aurea 2011.
• Grilled pork chop with Bordatto Basa Juan 2013.
• Apple custard tart with Bordatto Basandere 2013.
The dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. It costs $45 per person. For a reservation, call 919-537-8167.
