If you’re going to throw a big pig dinner that’s being presided over by female chefs, I guess it makes sense to advertise said pig dinner with a photo of one of those chefs posing with a bunch of dead pigs while wearing a human anatomy leotard.
The young lady seen here in a decidedly non-PETA-friendly shot is Melissa Torre of Cookie Confidential, and she’s posing with the dead pigs at Cannuli’s Meats (formerly Cannuli’s House of Pork) in the Italian Market as part of an advertising campaign for the Tap Room on 19th Street’s five-course Fine Swine Pork and Beer Dinner on February 24th.
The other chefs (the group is calling itself “The Fine Swine”) include Tap Room’s Jennifer Choplin, private chef Barbie Marshall, Tia McDonald of the Vetri Foundation, and Alix Christina from Amis.
Dinner (made from lots of pig parts) will cost $65 or $85 with beer pairings from Bucks County Brewery, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Vetri Foundation. Tickets will be available online soon and also at Tap Room and Cookie Confidential.
And here’s a photo by photographer Chatalie Nico. I hope that she titles it Pig Butt.
