Pig heads: A few observations

  • Pig heads are heavy. Like 15 pounds heavy, which wouldn’t be so bad if one didn’t leave said head in a freezer on the other side of Brooklyn and have to schlep it home on the G train.
  • Pig heads don’t have obvious handholds once the ears have been removed. When manipulating a head to get it from one pot to another, the natural tendency is to jam one’s fingers in the eye sockets. It’s not unlike a bowling ball that way. And it wouldn’t be so bad if the eyeballs weren’t still in there. Glad I’m not one of those people that can’t stand touching their eyes. Or other people’s eyes.
  • For some reason, brining overnight gives pig heads nosebleeds.
  • Pig heads have extremely coarse, bristly dark hair that looks an awful lot like — um, nevermind.

Alex's office secret Santa got him this crazy projection keyboard. Firsts: making porchetta and successfully tying a roast. We both came back obsessed with cacio e pepe. Saveur recipe 👍 A friend was traveling to Barcelona at the same that we were going to be in Sicily, so I proposed a turron/torrone swap. One of my better ideas, I think. (His Xixona turron, bottom left, arrived in the mail today. I already mailed his; the rest is the Sicilian stuff that I kept for myself.)
