Fette Sau's Heritage Pulled Pork With Chef Allie Klein

BBQ does not need to use exclusively the cheapest meat available. As with all cooking styles, heritage breeds make every dish better. Fette Sau was one of the first BBQ joints in the US to feature exclusively heritage breeds on their menu. Before each service, the team at the restaurant would chalk the daily specials on the board with the cut listed first and the breed/farm right after. For nearly 20 years they have featured Berkshire, Red Wattle, Tamworth, and Duroc Boston Butt, Belly, Bacon Ends, and Ribs and have been an anchor to Heritage Foods!

Pork Chops with Chef Delfin Jaranilla of Leland Eating & Drinking House

I love cooking because I love to eat! I love the connection to community, family, and love that really great food brings with it. Being a chef is also very rewarding to me because of the relationships you develop in this industry. The diverse range of characters you meet and spend time with every day, their stories, and the fact that as a chef, you somehow lead an entire team to the singular goal of delivering an experience to eager guests makes it all worthwhile.
