True story: I always envisioned that when I got married, I’d celebrate by having a huge feast of sorts: green onions wrapped in newspaper and dug into the ground, then peeled back and slathered in sauce, Spanish-style, or giant jugs of wine poured freely all ’round. If food is the ceremony of life, then what better way to celebrate a union of two people than by having lots and lots of it?
Well, I’m not married, nor am I planning anyone’s wedding soon. But I also always wanted to have a pig roast and a lamb on a spit; there’s something so pure and simple about a whole animal on fire, as if this is a tradition done for centuries and centuries, man eating animal by earth and fire. The simplicity is what makes it elegant.
Anyway, to make a long story short: I’ve always been fascinated by pig roasts. And so I’m thrilled to announce that B’klyn Burros will be hosting a fabulous authentic pig roast this Saturday in Williamsburg’s Havemeyer Park. There’ll be homemade chicharrónes (fried pork rinds), carnitas (roast pork), buche (pork sweetbreads), tacos, salsa, chili brews, and most importantly, there’ll be lots of love.
