Sacrificial Pig

Burning Pig

“It’s some ritual. Before the platter of pig appeared before the group I’d assembled, a server set up two perpendicular wood braces to support it. They formed a cross, a reminder — as if we would need one — that something died for the deadly sin dearest to us.”

-Frank Bruni, “Fat Glorious Fat, Moves to the Center Of the Plate,” New York Times, June 13, 2007
