Coffee with Chef James Cawley


Published:

Your Best Dish Pig ’n square (pied du cochon). It comes from the classic French preparation of “au pied de cochon,” which is simmered or roasted pigs’ feet. I slow-roast pork butt and simmer the pigs’ feet, pull all the meat, mix with sautéed mushrooms, roasted garlic, and truffle oil. The mixture sets in a pan overnight, then is cut into what resembles a pâté. The squares are breaded in Japanese breadcrumbs, sautéed on all sides until brown, and finished in the oven. It’s served with a cabernet-mustard-truffle sauce and sautéed rainbow swiss chard.

Wine of Choice Caymus Cabernet. American-grown, barrel-aged, and great, deep flavors.
