The History Of National Crown Roast Of Pork Day
Even though we’re not entirely sure when this holiday was invented, we do know that the crown roast of pork owes its existence to a 19th-century Victorian tradition.
It was common during the 1800s for people to serve a crown roast of lamb, which was considered to be the most elegant dish served. However, since pork is more common in the U.S. than lamb, people would end up serving crown roasts of pork.
Although this tradition would die out after the mid-20th century as more “modern” and time-efficient meals were developed, a lot of people are trying to bring it back to the culinary forefront. This is understandable considering that serving a crown roast of pork is something that seems elegant.
