Jan 22, 2015 4:00 pm

Heritage is a term thrown around in the food world a lot these days. There’s heritage honey, green beans and dozens of types of grains to contend with. The name also, for the most part, certifies quality. Cochon 555 founder Brady Lowe is a tireless champion of heritage pigs. The annual tour kicks off this weekend in NYC, with dinners on Friday and Saturday and the big competition on Sunday at the Andaz 5th Avenue.

Adobo is one of the most common dishes in the Philippines, but cooked in a variety of ways and with different kinds of meats. The most common ingredients of adobo are vinegar, garlic, soy sauce, bay leaves and black pepper. I wanted to add another layer of flavor by adding the dry rub and roasting the pork in beer. The end result is tender flavorful meat with a hint of spice, and with the traditional adobo flavors.

10 Things That Might Surprise You About The Wild World Of Heritage Pork

In a world where all pork products taste similar, heritage pigs rise above the rest. Here are some facts to know.
