Newsweek published a brief article about the renaissance of pork in New York’s upscale restaurants. According to the article, area chefs are only recently discovering the deliciousness of pig and all its jiggly parts. I had to laugh because the rest of the world was already well aware of the wonders of our snout-nosed friend and I’m sure New York is no exception. It probably just hasn’t been as in your face as it is now.
My friends and I agree. If we were relegated to eating the meat of only one animal for the rest of our lives, it would be the pig because it gives you everything — bacon, sausage, ham, pork chops, ribs, and of course, the unrivaled Spam (in musubi form ). Truly, the pig is God’s gift to man. No other animal is quite as versatile.
Yep Wilbur, you sure are “some pig” and and I’ll bet you taste “terrific” grilled over an open fire with a spicy dry rub.
