Pigs & Pinot guest chefs will be divided into two talent-packed teams. This Iron Chef style competition will be hosted by the food loving actor and comedian, Mario Cantone. Prepare yourself for some lively commentary. The two teams will be given a whole pig, which they will use to create two distinct dishes, along with ingredients they can find at Dry Creek Kitchen. Charlie Palmer will jump in to help for this all hands on deck cook off. Chef Scott Romano will join Charlie as our resident butcher. A pork-loving judging panel will determine the winning team. And yes, the audience gets to taste, too.
