The 7 Chef Pig Out at The Gladly Lived Up to Its Name

Before you could even step inside The Gladly Sunday, you could smell the salty, smoky aromas of pork wafting through the air. But that will tend to happen when seven of the Valley's best chefs team up to create an eleven-dish, pork-centric supper.

With the help of Tender Belly, which provided all the pork for the event, it seemed almost no part of the pig was off limits. We were treated to samplings of neck, feet, cheek, skin, tongue, belly, jowl, temple, blood, and lardo, to name a few (pig ears were conspicuously absent).
