Porcfest 2011 Series — What delicious eats we have!


Bigger, and better. This is what the Porcupine Freedom Festival has done each year since it began. If you decide to come on down this year (and please do!), be sure to check out many of these entrepreneurial culinary vendors who have come together to cater to all of our unique wants and desires.

When it comes to eats, we all know that George Mandrik Skouras will be whipping together amazing Greek-inspired creations such as the Greek cheese sandwich (he’d better make this one this year!), his famous baklava, and the newly-developed Trainwreck sandwich of ultimate bacon proportions! While it will take much coaxing for this pescetarian to consume any bacon, I bet this sandwich will become the new staple sandwich of Porcfest among bacon-lovers!

While I love me some fried, cheesy, and high-calorie goodies, I was really excited to hear about the healthier selections – this includes many vegan and vegetarian options for those who may love their fellow piglet friends a little too much to consume the wildly tempting(and low-carb;) Trainwreck.

Mimi Bobekunin’s The Stone, is an eatery offering food ranging from American, Italian, vegan, and vegetarian! You will find it inside the Jazz Hall at Roger’s, so please stop by for something delicious; if you find you’ve got a craving, come and satisfy it with a meal, a drink, or perhaps a dessert! To the right we have The Stone’s Poached Strawberries, Peaches, and Mango over Crushed Ice. Can we say – perfect for a hot summer’s day, or what!?

Another healthy option that caught my eye was The Salad Station! Andrew Meininger felt a healthy eating option was missing at previous Porcfests; to change this, he created The Salad Station. Offered at this tasty vendor is side, or dinner-sized salads, and 20 deliciously fresh toppings to choose from!

Hopefully soon, we will see a sample menu from these fine folks!

Stacy Litz has got me intrigued with her holistic health products that she will be offering, and as a huge fan of essential oils (great for aromatherapy, skin care, meditation, and more), I will be sure to check out what she has to offer. Want a tarot card reading? She’s got you covered! Oh, and if you find your tummy rumbling while at her site, try one of her homemade sandwiches! I must also commend her on her excellent template choice for her blog (yeah, we’ve got the same one…)!

If you’d like to get a little crazy at Porcfest, Delia Dubois will be serving up some not “your mama’s” boring old jello shots in the later hours! I’m excited to find out what flavour combos she’s got brewing!

These agorist food vendors are only some of the food options available at this year’s Porcfest! Check back to the Porcfest Vendor Page for updated information on menus and more!
