The thought of being stranded on an island doesn't sound too appealing--unless, of course, it's Pig Island. Now, Pig Island isn't so much an island but rather an all-day, all-you-can-eat pork festival on Governor's Island, a small picturesque enclave a short ferry ride from Manhattan. And at day's end, it was less about me being stranded and more that I felt I had to be rolled off the island due to complete meat overdose--check out my pictures and you'll see why!Once a year, chefs from twenty of New York's renowned restaurants set up tents to demonstrate their own unique talents when it comes to preparing this succulent meaty mainstay. Using only locally sourced produce and 60 pigs from 3 nearby farms, this pig-lovers festival featured such creative dishes as slow-c00ked pork in root beer, pulled pork with fruit chutney, pork sausage, Korean pork tacos with kimchi, pork sliders, and even pork paté.
