The ten chefs – past winners and fan favorites – worked together to prepare a ‘snout-to-tail’ menu featuring heritage breed pigs sourced in their local markets. The event included over forty swine infused dishes, four butcher demos, reserve wines, artisan cocktails, craft brews and pig-infused desserts.
