The Pigfather – Part I – The Making of Salami

23 Aug

June 4 2011

One day I was asked by my Zio John and Fausto to assist them in their upcoming Salami Day. Clearly I said yes. Along with some of the finest and most respected salami makers of Werribee South, I went and spent half a day with my hands coiled around raw meat. An indescribable sensation in itself.

Where did the name The Pigfather come from, you ask? Need I mention The Godfather? I shouldn’t have to. The first twenty seconds of this film should quite clearly demonstrate the reference!

Filming was gratefully undertaken by my friend Ben who I was able to bring along to join in on the cultural festivities. 

Produced by La Donna del Vino.
