Welcome to a Very Special Episode of Grub Street. In honor of National Pork Day, were going to turn back the clock and look at some of the most memorable pork moments from our first six and a half months. We remember them as if they were yesterday

Who can forget the magic when Cesare Casella and a bevy of fellow pork-loving cooks went upstate to meet the chefs new breed of pig?

And then there was that time, soon after, when we told you about some delicious heritage pigs available around town.

One of the guest stars of the Casella post was Spotted Pig chef April Bloomfield. Shes no stranger to pork cookery, as our audience was delighted to find out!

Grub Street took a turn for the mysterious when we delved into the secrets of the cult of jamn ibrico de bellota, the worlds most prized ham.

And who can forget when we embraced the great crossover tradition and Rob and Robin dropped by bearing a masterful, fetishistic guide for the pork fiend?
