Go hog wild at the beloved Pig Island! Featuring 25+ chefs creating the freshest and funkiest dishes from locally sourced hogs. Previous years’ dishes included glazed pork belly and peach on cold ramen, wood smoked pork pizza, pig head tacos, roasted pork sliders, crispy pig ear lettuce wraps and bacon banana bread with caramelized bacon.
Keeping the focus on local, Pig Island also features a selection of New York State craft beer from Sixpoint and others, wine, artisan spirits and ciders all included in one general admission price.
“…the tasting event will be tasking area chefs to create ambitious dishes using hogs from Flying Pigs Farm as their inspiration. For attendees, it’s about … delicious bites of pork, from pulled pork to whole-roasted beasts to hot dogs and beyond… In addition to all the pork belly (and shoulder and chops and ribs), they’ll have plenty of free-flowing beer, cider and wine (all included in the ticket), plus a brand new ‘Whiskey Tent’ that sounds both amazing and dangerous.” The Gothamist, Pig Island Preview
