Portland Pig Roasts

This week’s Food & Dining section features an article on pig roasts. David Mallari, Portland’s Pig Kahuna, was interviewed for the story.

Mallari credits the sluggish economy for the extra work. People are looking for less expensive, more informal alternatives to higher-end catering, which can run $65 to $100 per person compared with an average of $20 to $25 for a pig roast.

Plus, the pig is the star – you might even say the life – of the party.
