Chris Cosentino Explores Swine Blood and Brains on Modern Marvels

Posted By on Mon, Nov 9, 2009 at 12:00 PM

On the latest installment of Modern Marvels on the History Channel, the time line of the other white meat is traced from the introduction to America by Spanish explorers to its current genetically super-boosted ride to the plate. But, for us, it's all about the late-in-the-episode appearance of our own chef Chris Cosentino, who opens up his kitchen at Incanto (1550 Church at 28th St.) to prepare a couple of intriguing dishes: Pig brains with chanterelles, capers, and lemon brown butter, and chocolate panna cotta flavored with pig's blood. Fascinating, and not at all for the faint of heart.
