In a place not too far away that looks and feels like another time zone, is a community that hosts an annual Pig Roast. I attended this year (2011) – and quite surprisingly it was like nothing I have experienced before.
The purpose of this gathering ritual is to roast a pig (which is stuffed with a whole turkey). The process is quite phenomenal. A small 60 lbs. pig is wrapped in banana leaves and dropped into a grave of hot coals – left to stew for nearly 18 hours.
