Grill-a-Chef is going to be participating in "Pig Island" on October 2nd.
Governer's Island will be transformed into a pork-lover's paradise.
Welcome to Pig Island, a culinary festival featuring local food, NY State wines, Six Point Craft Ales, and live music -- it is guaranteed to be an amazing day out.
A dozen chefs from some of New York City’s finest venues along with an impressive cast of food experts and personalities are expected to dazzle the crowd with their “whole hog know-how”. All participants will work with locally sourced ingredients, including whole pigs purchased directly from farms, such as Violet Hill Farm and The Piggery.
