A Night of Lechon and Cognac with VKV Cebu Members
I was invited by Dr. Nestor Alonso to his fraternity's anniversary. His simple preposition was that he is organizing a lechon and cognac night for the Venerable Knight Veterinarians Fraternity and Sorority members of Cebu. With lechon alone, it would have been an easy yes but with cognac, it became a no-brainer. Happy 63rd Anniversary, VKV!!!
Lechon and Cognac Pairing
The lechon and cognac night was held at La Casa Vieja in Banawa. On this night, we had 3 lechons from different suppliers: Cang's Lechon, KKD's very own lechon, and Paray's Lechon. We paired each with a cognac: Louis Royer XO, Hennessy XO, and Remy Martin Club.
As for me, I really focused on the lechon and the cognac. We started with the Louis Royer paired with Cang's Lechon. I was pleasantly surprised that cognac and lechon worked out well. Alcohol and fatty food is a match made in heaven and the cognac added some spice to the lechon. I probably would not have cognac and spicy lechon together, but regular lechon Cebu with French cognac is an excellent pairing.
lechon wars". It did not lag behind the other established brands when it comes to flavor. Pairing it with the Hennessy XO was a joyful experience. As we had more shots of cognac and lechon, everything felt lighter and I hear more laughter from the Knights. As we finished off the night with the Paray's lechon and Remy Martin Club, I can see how close the VKV community in Cebu and if I had a kid or a nephew who wanted to be a veterinarian, I would probably tell him or her to join VKV.
