In case you aren’t aware, the Catskills are hitting their peak foliage right about now. Ergo, there is no better time to catch our first out-of-town food event, Pig Mountain Catskills. Offering up a pig roast celebrating all things local, Pig Mountain Catskills will take place on Saturday, October 15th from 1-6 p.m. at Bridle Hill Farm (190 Hemmer Road, Jeffersonville, NY). The event will feature chefs familiar to Jimmy’s community, including Heather Carlucci-Rodriguez (Print), Matt Weingarten (Inside Park at St. Bart’s), and Ryan Tate (Savoy) roasting eight whole hogs provided by Hilly Acres Farm and Stone & Thistle Farm. In addition, Chef Anthony Sasso (Casa Mono) recently announced his sides:
- BBQ baked beans with pig trotters
- Deviled eggs “pickle back” with some Jim Beam and homemade pickle juice
- Tomato watermelon gazpacho salad
- Grilled indian corn with pork manteca, some lime and chilli powder
This is a great chance to watch these fine city chefs in a country environment. Of course, beer and wine from New York state will be available, and proceeds will benefit Farmhearts, a non-profit helping family farms in the Catskills.
For those wanting to make a weekend of it, chefs will be digging their pits and starting their roasts this Friday evening, and a special Pig Mountain Catskills Brunch will be served up by Early Bird Cookery on Sunday (reserved seatings at 10 a.m and noon) at Hill’s Country Inn (6 Bethlehem Road, Callicoon Center, NY). The brunch menu includes trout hash, farmer’s market frittata and roasted corn fritters with candied bacon. For information on lodging, click here. Tickets are on sale online, if you want to buy them in advance. Hope you can join us out in the country!
