John Delpha of the Belted Cow Bistro in Essex Junction, Vermont, is one of the finest chefs I know. His skill in the kitchen is matched only by the depth of his restaurant and catering business knowledge. Having him as part of an OnCue event is a bonus. In addition to his cheffing skills, he’s a barbecue guy as well. As a member of the IQue team, the first New England team to ever win The Jack, he’s mastered barbecue as well. At the Whole Hog Extravaganza, he did a detailed porchetta demo using a 30-lb. suckling pig.
Brined and stuffed with homemade sausage, seasonings and pork tenderloins, the end result was a riot of crispy skin, spicy sausage, and delicate pork flavor.
