Have you ever been somewhere that truly inspires you? I was invited to spend a day with Mark and Rita Newman of Newman Farms Heritage Berkshire pork. From the first moment I stepped out of my car I felt like family. They live on an amazing piece of property and raise their hogs the old fashioned way. Everything is done as humane as possible,and guess what, the pigs are happy!!
Andrew Michael's Italian Kitchen. They were doing most of the cooking for this event. There were Chefs and Foodies from around the country as well. Everyone wanted to see why the pork sold here was so amazing. And trust me, you have not eaten pork until you have had some Heritage Berkshire Pork!!
Dorper Lamb. These are a mix of the Dorset and Persian breeds. They are very hearty animals as well as being very, very delicious. So after our tour of the farm we come back to find one of these beauties on the spit. He would go on to roast for hours to become nice and crispy lamby goodness!!!!
Porchetta I have ever had.
La Caja China to roast for many more hours. Until the skin was uber crispy and delicious and juicy as I have never had before.
Memphis farmers market every Sat from 7am to 1pm. Or visit their site at Newmanfarm.com.. Their pork is known across the country as some of the best, so if you see Newman farms pork on a menu, get it you will not be disappointed.
