Pig-Out Insider Recommendations
Pig Out

National Pig Day is coming up on Monday, March 1st. While Congress has yet to declare celebrating the other white meat as an official holiday, we think it's a great opportunity to honor the animal that provides a bounty of bacon, trotters, crackling, and lardo.

Swine Dining

Joseph Leonard's Cochon Sundays
Every Sunday night at Joseph Leonard, chef James McDuffee creates snout-to-tail specials for his regular menu. Some recent dishes include headcheese, confit of pork shoulder, terrines, and pulled pork pastas.

Chef David Schuttenberg at Cabrito, refers to himself as a "pork nut." His Heritage Foods braised pork belly tacos have a respectable following, including Jake Dickson, the owner of Dickson's Farmstand Meats.

Pork Chopped

Dickson's Farmstand Meats would like you to taste the different parts of the pig, using their Whole Pig Punch Card. For $100, you can work your way through the various cuts - picking up the parts you want, when you want them.
