The Whole Hog Project

These videos were on Serious Eats this week. (Edit on Monday 11/24/08): These videos were put together by Michael Gebert. It was a true farm to table story following the hogs from birth, to the slaughter house, to the table. It might be a little hard to watch for some, but it is well worth it. We are all a little disconnected from where and how we get our food. But these videos show us the entire process. It's more about celebrating the animal, than it is about just eating it. I know I'll be looking at my pork ribs a little different from now on.

Minor correction: the videos are by me, Mike Gebert, Mike Sula wrote the series of articles on the mulefoot pig which you can see here:

It's confusing because we're both seen but not heard on the video. Anyway, thanks for the links, glad you found them worthwhile.

Oops, make that heard but not seen!
