In 2011, I launched Pork Memoirs, a literary site and archive about pork and identity. Turns out there are amazing stories wrapped up in such a complicated yet ubiquitous food. Writers submitted memoirs from around the world, about unexpected delights, micro-rebellions, affirmed faith and identity, and much much more. A few of the most popular memoirs are listed below. The site remains an archive that explores the ins and outs of food taboos and the nuanced and unexpected role pork plays in many of our lives.
