Pork Belly - 2008
Pork belly, a/k/a uncured bacon, has become the Morgan Freeman of food?ubiquitous and overrated. True, when it?s good, it?s very, very good, as in the oft-referenced Momofuku pork buns. But pork belly is a cheap trick?it?s half pork fat! And why neglect other parts of the oinker? Bring back pork shoulder!
