Heavy Rain, Strong Winds & Pork…

Last night while mother nature was gently reminding New York City who’s in charge, I was tinkering around in the kitchen of a beautiful Brooklyn Heights apartment overlooking the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge – cloaked in storminess.  While I sang the praises of a vegetable forward cooking in the previous post, I won’t be turning a cold shoulder to a good old fashioned meat extravaganza.  While they marveled at the wind and rain outside, eight diners devoured a mountain of pork I had the pleasure of preparing for them.  There’s no satisfaction quite like waking up to a pork shoulder that has been roasting overnight to see that it’s done….just perfectly done…
