New York City will celebrate September with the 2011 food event that everyone has been waiting for: Pig Island II! Picking up where we left off in 2010, Pig Island II is an all-local event, featuring farmers, chefs, brewers and vintners, bringing the best of New York State to New York City. Pig Island II will source 80 hogs from NY farmers, prepared by 20 top NYC chefs. This farm/food collaboration will be complemented by specialty craft beer and NY wine, cooking and knife demonstrations and giveaways sponsored by Wüsthof , and opportunities to see the best of New York in action. Pig Island II will take place on September 10th, from 11:30am - 5pm, on Governors Island’s historic Colonel’s Row.
We are excited to announce the participation of PBS Food Show host Michael Colameco who will serve as Honorary Co-Chair and film a special episode about Pig Island II.
Other participating community partners will include: Earth Matter, Kingsborough Community College Culinary Program and Teen Battle Chef.
