Poc Chuc Part 2

20130722-210222.jpg

The new menu at Xoco features a real summer classic: the charcoal pork, or poc chuc, torta. It is Yucatan-style pork shoulder marinated in sour orange, cut thin and grilled, with cabbage, black beans, juicy beefsteak tomatoes, and habanero. We are also doing a pumpkinseed squash chicken soup, and a salad made entirely of vegetables from Nichols Farm.

We raised $50,000 for local farmers in one night at Chef Rick and Deann’s house. The next day the management team and chefs met at the restaurant for a seminar by Ari Weinzweig, the lapsed anarchist, chef and owner of Zingerman’s Delicatessen. In the visioning, it was July 2014 in the Xoco.

    Thanks to all of you who helped raise funds. That’s quite a camera in the picture. It seems that all the nieces & nephews have cameras & use them, I learned from your Great Uncle Bob & am glad you are all carrying on the tradition. Wish we lived closer to all the good food you present.
