What a totally engaging article on the pig. Here in Sudbury we claim a culinary triumph- the unique Porketta Roast. The butchers who immigrated brought the porchetta recipe at the turn of the century, and create to this day, using porc butt ends, rolled with the secret spices- porketta roast. The local hotels, began a game called porketta bingo, served the pork sandwich in the beer hall, and the prize was a 6-8 lb porketta roast. The game is now a licensed OLG -gambling game. At one point in the 1990's, three distinct family recipes supplied different hotels. The rivalry was intense as any sport, developing devoted fans. The Porketta Season opens in Sudbury in early October. A terrific Ontario producer,www.thewholepig.ca is a great source for pig
