John's Birthday Dinner

Today is my amazing husband's birthday and to celebrate, 12 friends are going to a grand dinner at Back Forty in the East Village.

We've booked their farm table and with the help of 10 our closest friends, plan to devour a whole pig that’s been
stuffed with herbs, garlic, and seckel pears, and oven-roasted. The
$600 fee includes a seasonal salad, two sides, and a whole pie.

If you'd like to try it sometime yourself, but don't like the hefty pricetag, stop by on a Monday night, when chef Shanna
Pacifico will serve thick porchetta-style slices of the pig, along with
black beans and sautéed greens, at the more modest price of $24.
