Mr Crackles and Handpicked Wines are throwing a “Swine & Wine” party (Sydney)

In what is pretty much guaranteed to be one of the stand-out events on Sydney’s long list of December food and drink events, local institution Mr Crackles – considered an originator in the art of attracting enormous fucking queues – has partnered with Handpicked Wines for a huge pre-Xmas feast mixing swine with wine on December 17th.

The pork-loving Oxford Street favourite will be popping up for one day only over in Chippendale’s Handpicked Cellar Door with a trio of suckling pig dishes to be expertly matched with wines for a Sunday lunch session from 1pm to 3pm. The urban cellar door will also be offering up bottle shop discounts and free gift wrapping, so after all that pork and wine you can get get your Christmas shopping done while taking advantage of the fact you have Handpicked’s very helpful sommeliers to help you.

“We’re excited to bring Mr Crackles out of the Late Night east environment in Oxford Street and showcase some of the lesser seen dishes on our menu. The highlight will no doubt be our suckling pig and porchetta dishes with impressive full suckling pigs on display”, said Sam Horowitz of Mr Crackles. “Swine and Wine will be a mini ‘Mr Crackles Fan Appreciation Society’ [where] we want our fans to pig out and have a good time – they’ll definitely be well-fed”.

Tickets to the event are priced at $45 and include two different types of suckling pig and stuffed porchetta, matched with a tasting flight of 4 premium Australian Handpicked wines. They are available now from HERE.
