The first Fine Swine Cook-Off and Flavor Fest will be held from 2-8 p.m. on May 20 at the South Texas Heritage Pork Farm near Floresville. The centerpiece of the event is a cook-off between local culinary schools, all of which will be given a grass-raised pig to work with. Brian West, who teaches butchery at the C.I.A., will be that team's advisor, and well-known chefs and food writers will serve as judges. Yes, there will be tastes, but likely not until near the end of the event.

To keep early arrivers fortified and entertained, there will be a gaggle of food trucks, including Jason Dady's Duk Truck and Say.She.Ate, plus enough other vendors to make the scene look like a mini farmers market. Ranger Creek will be on hand with beer, and wine will also be available. There will be live music to accompany cooking demos. And at some point in the proceedings, the documentary film Farmageddon will be shown. A whole hog will be raffled off. Oh, and there's a pie eating contest. Interested participants should email Info@SouthTexasHeritagePork.com.

General admission is $35, with an up-graded V.I.P ticket that includes wine, beer, and a ringside seat available for $75. Culinary schools will get a part of the proceeds for their efforts, and there are also prizes for students to help them kick-start culinary careers. For tickets and directions go to southtexasheritagepork.com or call (830) 534-7993.
