Piggie Update: The Unveiling
After cooking overnight and chillaxin’ in the fridge for a day, Piggie is ready for his spotlight. We couldn’t help but sneak a taste, and of course its straight porky dankness. The flavor and texture varied greatly depending on what part we tried; so far we’ve tried the snout and jowl sections, but personally I can’t wait til we hit the ear section. What will we do with...
It’s smellin’ porky up in the PY kitchen! After two days of marination, our piggie has finally made its way to the oven, where it has been slow cooking all night long. He’ll need to chill out for a couple days after all that cookin’, so look for our porky friend to hit the menu next week. CeeRoks also made a mean stock with the skull, which he first roasted in the oven...
CeeRoks has pulled out the stops and decided to roll up his sleeves and get nasty. Getting nasty rolling up some pig head that is. The best way we can describe this is through a preparation called “Porchetta di Testa,” an Italian salume (aka. prepared, salted meat) prep that takes a de-boned, rolled up pig’s head seasoned porchetta-style (with rosemary, lemon and garlic) left to poach...
Here Piggie Piggie
It’s no secret that Chef Cee-Roks has a thing with pork. He’s like the pig-whisperer, a porcine magician that brings delicious pork belly and chicharrones to those that enter our humble restaurant. So when he got wind of a whole pig head nearby, he had to snatch it up. What will he do with this massive, meaty porker? Check back throughout the week to find out!

What the Phuc is a Periwinkle?
While perusing this weeks menu, you may have said to yourself “What the Phuc is a Periwinkle?” Well, its a marine gastropod mollusk from the Littorinidae family. Wait, you still don’t get it? Ok, fine, its a snail. Before you start picturing escargot drowned in butter and garlic to the point where you don’t taste it anymore, don’t. These briny babies are smaller,...
