We Have a Code Kosher Pork Sit-U


Many of you know that UC is AG’s Adorable Boyfriend. He was corrupted several years ago by an unknown non Jewish individual who versed him into the pork and the unkosher world. This happened despite being raised in a kosher house, Jewish day school and Bubie and Zadie’s careful watch. Sometimes you can love ’em, but you just cannot live their lives for them! Since the corruption, UC is pretty much pork snarking 24/7. He wants pork pancakes and knish in the AM, pork burritos and lox at lunch and some pork-ghetti with tzimmes at night. The only time he might take a break from said routine, but probably only from actually doing it, not thinking it is during Passover.

AG, on the other hand, never liked the smell, look or taste of pork. Even Miss Piggy was useless unless Kermit was around with a guitar. Pork is just wrong to her. Just plain wrong. Being the AG that she is, she was delighted when she got the e-mail below from one of UC’s favorite restaurants. His response when AG e-mailed him about it. Wait for it. “This might actually be too much pork.” Have we turned a corner? Is the world going to end with this mess in the Middle East? Might the Red Sox actually win this year? Could Santa Harry be for real? Oh magic Jesus eight-ball! Do we need a UC pork snorkel intervention?

By now you know that we at Craigie Street go whole hog on everything we do, but we’re taking that commitment to a new and delicious extreme.

Mark your calendar because on Tuesday, August 22, we invite pork lovers to wine, dine on swine, and rejoice at a six-course dinner celebrating all the porky pleasures. As we write, Chef Tony Maws — not resting for one moment on the laurels of his Boston Magazine “Best Chef” award — is busily shopping the organic farms of Vermont for the perfect piglets. His August 22 Whole Hog menu combines his fanaticism for perfect organic quality with his vivid and elegant culinary imagination, his “nose to tail” approach, and his passion for all things pork.

    Res…you need to come out of hiding and cook a meal like this for me.

  9. Adorable Girlfriend Says:

    I like when Res hides. It is so cute because when he comes out of cognito, he’s a blogger whore! And I say that with all due respect to the talents of his writings.

    Fishie, bacon will clog your arteries. Now behave.
