SLOW U: Women Know Pigs

Tuesday, October 23, 2012
6:00pm to 8:00pm

A woman pig farmer, a woman butcher, and a woman chef talk about the swine in their lives and the  traditionally male-dominated professions in which they work. Meanwhile half a humanely raised, heritage breed pig is butchered for practical education and the other half is prepared for gustatory enjoyment.  Join pig farmer Becky Mumaw of Clawhammer Farm, butcher Sara Bigelow of The Meat Hook, and Chef Julia Sullivan of Haven’s Kitchen, for a fun and delicious educational event. Your tasting will be accompanied by local wines selected for the occasion. The butchered cuts will be auctioned of at the end of the evening (cash, checks, and credit cards accepted).

Proceeds from this event will support the programs of not-for-profit Slow Food NYC.  Programs include the Urban Harvest program of good food education for New York City kids at schools in the South Bronx and Harlem, on the Lower East Side, and in Brooklyn and at a summer urban farm in Brooklyn.
