Carl Edgar Blake has been researching and working for years to craft the most delicious pig in the country. Now, his Iowa Swabian Halls, raised on his 15-acre Rustik Rooster Farm, are winning culinary contests, attracting praise from chefs across the country and drawing the interest of the Food Channel’s Andrew Zimmern. Blake also owns and runs a local bakery, the Waverly Home Bakery in Waverly Iowa. He shares how his life’s work went from computer consulting to a passion for pig perfection that has included a guest appearance with two piglets on The Colbert Report . This lecture was recorded on Friday, October 18, at 6:00 PM in the Memorial Union at Iowa State University as part of the National Affairs Series on Innovation.
