Porchetta & Co.
Chef Nick auf der Mauer runs this tiny shop specializing in one thing: porchetta sandwiches. He marinates pork shoulder for 24 hours in a mixture of lemon zest, herbs and garlic oil, then wraps it in prosciutto, and again in pork belly. After slow-roasting the meat until the crust is crackling, Mauer stuffs slices of it in a local sourdough roll. His fan base is so rabid that they recently fumed at Anthony Bourdain’s camera crew when they blocked the door to shoot an episode of The Layover.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
