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.
