This is a birthday celebration I had with my family welcoming them now that they live far away in the other side of the world!  What a nice birthday gift!  To have family with you.  So I decided to celebrate!

My favorite roast pig was too big for us so I ordered a pork belly roll similar to the Italian Porchetta.  The skin was definitely crisp throughout   It was a large pork belly still with skin and rolled with spices and fresh lemon grass inside.

 I also made the salad above made with pink Italian lettuce - available only in Spring.  With white asparagus, frisée, watermelon radish and roasted beets.  Later drizzled with balsamic vinegar dressing.
