Video: Butchering Berkshire at Pig & Prince in Montclair

Chef Michael Carrino, chef and co-owner of Pig & Prince Restaurant & Gastrolounge, in Montclair, opens his glorious meat locker and carries out half of a 285* pound Berkshire Pig.  He lays the pig on the butchering table, ties on his yellow bandana, snaps on his black latex gloves, breaks out the hacksaw, and goes to work.  About every fourteen days Carrino practices this near ritualistic butchering of a Berkshire pig.  He harvests specific cuts to be used mainly for curing purposes, but is very methodical and makes every cut with a mind toward  minimizing waste.

In the event that you didn't catch  Neighborhood Eats on ABC News yesterday, we're sharing the video with you! 

Check out Ilson Goncalves of Samba Montclair as he talks about his inspiration for Samba, and, of course, Bobó de Camarão. I think a few local food bloggers, and a Montclair toffee maker make an appearance as well. ;)
