There are currently 2.6 million wild boar in Texas, causing $1.5 billion in annual damage by rooting up crops and eating livestock. Jesse Griffiths, chef/owner of Dai Due and cookbook author, has written and spoken extensively on how these invasive species translate into sustainable, delicious protein. For November’s Slow Session, we will gather on the back patio of Dai Due, where Jesse will explain the history and physiology of hunting, butchering and serving wild hog. He will also serve up samples of wild hog preparations, and an abbreviated drink menu will be available as well.

Then we will get to sample various items from the test kitchen, all made using different grains.

Andrew Braunberg of Still Austin will also be there to speak about our city’s first grain-to-glass distillery and how they’re working with BSM to re-introduce heritage winter wheats that grew in Texas early in the last century and would have flavored pre-prohibition Texas whiskeys.

It should be a very educational (and delicious!) event.. looking forward to seeing you all there!
