The History of The Hairy Pig
The Hairy Pig Deli begins as a dream during a wild boar hunt in the Loire Valley in France. Chef Joseph Turner has an idea to one day open up a restaurant "The Hairy Pig". Little does he know that one day the dream will come true, but much further north with future wife and business partner Karolina Turner.
After achieving a diploma at the internationally known culinary school Leith's School of Food and Wine in London, Joseph continues his culinary development at restaurants in Dubai, Spain, England, as well as in the French Alps and the Channel islands.
The married couple arrives to Sweden
In 2008, Joseph and Karolina become class friends at the Swiss hotel and restaurant school “The International School of Hotel Management Les Roches”. Their common interest, passion and ideas within the hospitality industry brings them together.
After accomplishing their studies in Spain, Joseph and Karolina move to Sweden.
