If pork is your thing, you must consider taking in the fourth annual "Hogtoberfest" Oct. 13 and 14 on Nantucket. Chefs Michael LaScola of American Seasons on the island, and Matt Jennings of Farmstead in Providence (James Beard nominee for Best Chef-Northeast and three-time Cochon 555 winner), pair up for a back-of-the-house carving demo on Berkshire-Tamworth hogs, hand raised on Nantucket's The Faraway Farm. They then use each cut throughout the weekend for beer/charcuterie tastings and a multi-course meal of inventive pork dishes paired with American Seasons' small-production American wines.

The weekend lineup includes the carving demo which will show head-to-tail carving and showing diners how to harvest and use each part of the animal; a beer and charcuterie master class; an "All-Things Pork" dinner, featuring a range of pork specials at American Seasons.
