Pig's Head

Giant 85LB Pigs Head

Visit the gallery.

The day I had surgery an 85lb pigs head was delivered to the restaurant. When I got the call the next day about this pigs head I was excited but bummed I couldn’t be there. So to make sure I was happy my Pastry Chef Thomas took great photos on the butchering and cooking process. I know you have seen how to butcher the pigs head from me in the past but I am really happy that my team nailed it with this pigs head.

Thanks guys you did a great job as always.

  1. Wow, now I wish I’d taken bought that pig head when I had the chance! But I had no idea what to do with it and none of my meat cookbooks yielded any information. 20-21st century cookbooks assume all meat comes butchered and ready for cooking.

  2. As soon as I saw the butchering. I could smell the fresh meat as if it were here in my office. MMMMMMMM! Child hood memories!!! I’m gonna make Barbacoa this weekend now. So long Pig head say hello to Cow Head & hi to my stomach.
