Ben Runkle of Salt and Time Butchershop and Salumeria has got his work cut out for him. He’s facing off with Raymond Tatum of Three Little Pigs in an epic pork battle at Springdale Farms, with the proceeds going to Colleen Sommers of Pie Fixes Everything.

Ms. Sommers is battling cancer and Austin’s food community is rallying the troops to aid this talented baker in her battle with the disease. Raymond Tatum was doing high level pork preparations when Runkle was but a notion in his parent’s minds, but the outcome is anything but certain. Years back, the young Runkle threw a pig party at the Victory Grill {documented here http://chowpapi.com/wordpress/wordpress-2.8.6/wordpress/?p=346 } and after some coaxing we had as fine a plate of pork as we ever put down our gullet.

Details on the benefit:

Place: Springdale Farms 755 Springdale Road Austin, Texas 78702

Time: 6-9 pm

Cost: $25

What you get: Food from two talented cooks and the deep satisfaction of helping a fellow Austinite in need.

Music: Greyhounds + Whiskey Shivers

Beer/Wine? Yes, not sure the vendors but they will be local.

Hope to see y’all out on Thursday night.
