Slow Food Porchetta Dinner
Slow Food Urban San Diego and The Lodge at Torrey Pines present a special opportunity to taste a traditional Italian porchetta, a whole roasted pig  cooked by our guest, a master butcher from Abruzzo, Italy - Ercole Fasciocco - prepared with a locally-raised pig from Nathan's Farm.  

Culinary star Ercole Fasciocco continues decades of family tradition at Antica Macelleria Fasciocco.  A "macelleria" is a butcher shop, but the Fascioccos do much more than Americans would expect of a butcher.  Buying animals only from small-scale local farmers,  they are also artisan "salumieri", making many types of sausages and cured meats. They are also renowned as the best meat cooks in the region and are famous for their porchetta, a specialty of the Abruzzo region.

Participating San Diego chefs will also be contributing their own artisan food to the dinner - charcuterie and salad from Pete Balistreri of Tender Greens, a seafood appetizer from Paul Arias of The Fishery and porchetta accompaniments from Antonio Friscia of Stingaree and  Jeff Jackson and the chefs of The Lodge at Torrey Pines.

Also included in the price of dinner is craft beer from Vince Marsaglia of Pizza Port/Port Brewing Company and wine from Palumbo Family Vineyards and Falkner Winery in Temecula.  Lorenzo Scarpone, founder of Slow Food San Francisco and VNO Wines will also be on hand to share his perspective on Slow Food internationally.  

Seating will be family-style and tickets for the dinner are available for purchase online only, no walk-ins.  $10 from each ticket sold is a contribution to Slow Food Urban San Diego, a grassroots volunteer-driven non profit organization dedicated to education and advocacy for good, clean and fair food.
