Cesare Casella, the chef at the West Village's Maremma, is creating his own breed of pig, and Grub Street's Josh Ozersky is more than a little obsessed. On Monday, Grubbie Josh hitched a ride with Casella and a crew of other leading city chefs to head upstate and visit Stonewall Preserve, where this genetics experiment is happening. They met the pigs, and they ate one. What did they think? And who was there? Head over to Grub Street for the story.
