SactoMoFo's Truck and Mortar Throwdown

SactoMoFo's Truck and Mortar Throwdown
This was a tasty experience and awesome opportunity to support local restaurant and food truck chefs as well as kids charities. There were five teams of two each consisting of one restaurant chef and one food truck chef, who together prepared a savory and a sweet dish using the secret ingredients of the day, PORK and HONEY! Check out their creations... 
Team 1- Ella & Chando's
Savory: Pozole Rojo-traditional Mexican holiday pork and hominy soup with slow-cooked pork butt, red chilis and spices, garnished with shredded cabbage, pico de gallo, avocado, sliced radishes, line and a little TLC
Sweet: bacon churros drizzled with a honey ganache

Team 2- Ettore's & Drewski's
Savory: Cochininita Pibil- braised pork shoulder in banana leaf with citrus and achiote on white rice, with pickled red onion, micro cilantro and crispy seasoned chicharones
Sweet: "The Last Twinkie"- honey Twinkie with bacon-bourbon mascarpone filling

Team 3- Grange & Coast to Coast
Savory: British banger and Scotch eggs with charred jalapeno-honey remoulade
Sweet: bacon funnel cakes with persimmon-honey compote

Team 4- Kru & Krush Burger
Savory: mini crunchy taco with pickled red onions, micro greens, and a fire roasted tomatillo and avocado sauce
Sweet: pork belly with barley congee, sansho pepper teriyaki and crispy pork rind

Team 5- The Golden Bear & Simply Southern
Savory: ten-hour smoked pulled pork shoulder slider ith homemade Southern style honey BBQ sauce
Sweet: honey-glazed pork belly with house made sweet chevre, roasted beets and grits with chocolate mint

And the winners are...
For the SAVORY category: Team 4- Kru & Krush Burger (which I voted for)
For the SWEET category: Team 2- Ettore's & Drewski's (although I voted for Team 5- The Golden Bear & Simply Southern who prepared, in my opinion, the most upscale dessert there, the glazed pork belly with house made sweet chevre, roasted beets and grits with chocolate mint. Go figure the majority would go for "The Last Twinkie" as Honstess recently went out of business)
