Chef Stephanie Izard Shows Just How Easy Entertaining Can Be – With Pork


Hosting a party means there are all kinds of decisions to be made – and perhaps the most difficult one is deciding what to serve.

But serving pork makes it easy.

On Friday, July 26th, the National Pork Board and award-winning Chef Stephanie Izard (winner of Bravo’s Top Chef Season 4 and owner of Chicago’s Girl & the Goat and Little Goat Diner) hosted a group of 20 bloggers from around the country to provide a firsthand, interactive look at how pork is the solution to easy entertaining.


At her Little Goat restaurant, Izard provided a step-by-step demonstration on how to make her custom Pork Tenderloin Spring Rolls (check out the photos here). Guests enjoyed a pork-centric menu that included unbelievable tasty items like:

  • Pork Belly Tostado
  • Bacon Gouda Bread
  • Fork Porterhouse Pork Chop
  • Smoked Pork & Toffee Crunch Milkshake

The fun didn’t stop there – the Second City comedy club stopped by for an exclusive performance that armed guests with tips for entertaining through ice breakers and party games.
