Happy Pig to Decadent Dish and Everything in Between. (Warning: Graphic)

Posted: Updated:
PIG BUTCHERING PIGS HEAD

WARNING: Video contains images that some may consider disturbing.

Close to 10 BILLION animals are killed every year in the USA (100+ million are pigs). With that statistic in mind, only 6 pigs died during the making of this video... but it was tough. Killing animals is heavy business. After the deeds were done, the folks at Duskwind Farm gave me the heads.

With these faces full of flavor, I made a number of dishes, including tete de cochon. Watch this video to see the process from living pig to decadent dish.
