I'm in Des Moines for Niman Ranch’s 12th Annual Farmer Appreciation Dinner. I will regale you with tales of hog farming and pork eating after my return on Sunday. Here you can see the view from my hotel room of historic and scenic…well, I'm not sure what street that is yet, but for the sake of this post, let's just assume it's historic and scenic.
Stay tuned for more from Iowa, as well as a brand new (sort of) video recipe post tomorrow. Also, if you are wondering if I'm going to try and cook pork in my hotel room, what do you think? ;-)
