Local Pig, Port Fonda collaborating on X-mas tamales for you & Harvesters
- Local Pig
- Christmas tamales are coming to the Local Pig.
Santa and the elves, a bowl of eggnog and a hip flask, and now you can add Port Fonda and Local Pig (2618 Guinotte Avenue) to the list of Christmas collaborators. Patrick Ryan, the chef and owner at Port Fonda, and Alex Pope, owner and butcher at the Local Pig, are working together to create roasted-pork tamales that will be on sale next weekend (December 21-23) in a benefit for Harvesters.
The Tamale Collaboration, as they’ve taken to calling it, is a different kind of buy-one, get-one offer. For every dozen sold at the Local Pig, a dozen will be donated to Harvesters to be distributed Christmas Eve.
“I was driving an order of sausage over to Port Fonda, and the idea popped in my head,” Pope says, “Patrick’s a big believer in collaborations, and the Christmas tradition of Latin American families having tamales just worked.”
