I think a suckling pig is a real show-stopper and you might be surprised to hear that a good suckling pig is no more expensive than a good turkey. If you're going to give it a bash, just make sure you measure your oven and your largest baking tray before ordering your meat. If your oven is too small for a whole suckling pig, ask your butcher to order you a neck end. It can be cooked in exactly the same way as this recipe here. Free-range or organic suckling pigs can be hard to track down, but do have a go.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
