The Perfect Pig


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.
