It will be the first weekend after THE ELECTION, and we will all need a serious distraction from however it all ended up. So it is with a sigh of relief that we can announce that CHEF JEREMIAH BULLFROG PRESENTS HIS 7TH ANNUAL P.I.G. (PORK IS GOOD) on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2016.
18 Top Chefs, Heritage Breed Pork, Craft Spirits and Beers and Smooth Sounds Under the Miami Sky...and no more politicians!
Celebrity Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog, former owner of gastroPod Miami, presents his seventh annual P.I.G. (Pork Is Good), an intimate daylong celebration of all things pork, taking place Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 3pm-7pm at 150 Northwest 21st Street in Wynwood. For the event, Bullfrog and his cadre of 18 knife-slingers will show off their creativity and skill with Duroc heritage breed porcine from Creekstone Farms, along with craft beers and cocktails with spirits curated by Jen Massolo of The Liquid Projects.
“It’s been seven years since we first roasted a pig for a group of only 50 folks in the backroom of a former American Legion overlooking Biscayne Bay,” says Jeremiah. “Since then we’ve grown to include a multitude of local chefs, artisanal products, craft beer, and some of the most stellar mixologists in town. Although Pork is Good is now 10 times the size, the home grown vibe is still alive. It takes a strong team of supporters to pull these events off, but it is incredibly worth it. Nothing pays dividends quite like hearing our chefs say time and time again that P.I.G. is the event of the year in Miami.”
For six years running, Chef Jeremiah has brought together some of South Florida’s most exciting chefs, as well as a few stars from out of state, to showcase the power of the mighty pig, putting out tasty tid-bits such as chicharrónes, smoked pork butt bao buns, a porchetta-rolled whole pig, and bacon ice cream. For year seven, Jeremiah and his team are stepping it up with a star-studded lineup of local and national chefs, including: Dale Talde of Talde Miami Beach, Will Crandall of Izzy’s Fish & Oyster, Craig Deihl of Cypress Tavern, Artisan Meat Share in Charleston, SC, Phuket Thongsodchaveondee (Cake) of Cake Thai, Gabriel Ask of Faena Hotel, Aaron Brooks of Edge Steak and Bar, Steve Santana of Taquiza, Brian Mullins of Ms. Cheezious, Babe Froman of Babe Froman Fine Sausages, Josh Gripper of The Dutch, Kyle Foster of Julep Denver, CO, Joe Sparatta & Lee Gregory of Southbound Richmond, VA, Mike Pirolo of Macchialina, Pat Rebholz of Swine, Southern Table & Bar, Niven Patel of Ghee, Giselle Pinto of Sugar Yummy Mama, Malcom Prude of Macaroons by Malcom, and of course Jeremiah Bullfrog of gastropod. On the beverage front, Jeremiah has joined forces with Jen Massolo of The Liquid Projects who is hand-curating an incredible melding of craft beers and spirits. Massolo has brought in the talented team behind Bar Lab and The Anderson to literally shake things up with cocktails created with sponsored spirits such as Belle Meade bourbon, Rhum J.M and St. George Spirits, and local mixologists Cricket Nelson and Jamie Evans will feature a Frosé gin cocktail from the official gin sponsor Rutte dutch gins. In addition to a mouthwatering selection of all-you-can-sample food and drinks, guests of all ages will groove to sounds of DJ Le Spam of Spam Allstars.
A native of Miami, Chef Jeremiah continues to build his reputation as one of South Florida's most innovative purveyors of haute cuisine. From his restaurant and Food Truck ventures to personal engagements and exclusive dining events, his cooking is as exciting as it is critically acclaimed. As a young culinarian, Jeremiah explored and worked around the world, seeking global influence for what evolved into his signature style. In 2009, he opened Miami’s first gourmet food truck, gastroPod, that started a long-lasting trend in the city. Based out of two vintage Airstream trailers, gastropod served amped street food with a no-nonsense approach. He eventually settled in to a semi-permanent spot in Wynwood and has since sold the space to take on an exciting new venture. Now called the Garden, the space will be managed by Omni, with Jeremiah overseeing small details. Multiple television appearances such as Food Network’s Chopped, Beat Bobby Flay, Cutthroat Kitchen, and CNBC’s Restaurant Startup revealed Jeremiah’s true personality to a national audience.
Put down the newspaper, turn off the TV and head over to celebrate Pork is Good...no matter which one ends up in The White House.
