Video: From Happy Pig to Tete de Cochon

Close to 10 billion animals are killed every year in the U.S., and more than a hundred million of them are pigs. With that statistic in mind, only six pigs died during the making of this Perennial Plate video...but it was tough.

Killing animals is heavy business. After the deeds were done, the folks at Duskwind Farm gave me the heads. With these faces full of flavor, I made a number of dishes, including tete de cochon. Watch this video to see the process from living pig to decadent dish.

Warning: This video contains images that some may consider disturbing.
