Look out HoneyBaked Ham Company. Reigning Tucson Iron Chef Ryan Clark - executive chef at Lodge on the Desert - and local gardener, sommelier and bee-keeper Noel Patterson are teaming up for an event that takes pairing sweetness and swine to a whole new level:

Ryan will be roasting a whole pig in a La Caja China box. You’ll get to see part of the process, as well as chat with him.

All dishes will feature honey from Dos Manos Apiaries. Noel Patterson, owner of Dos Manos Apiaries will be on hand to talk honey, bees, and will have plenty of honey for sale, as well.

3 Condiments: chili-honey, honey-mustard and honey-BBQ
