Pig Latin is a team founded by Ochsner doctors, many of whom actually care for pediatric patients with brain cancer, so this cause is near and dear. The Pig Latin team is going into its 13th year with Hogs for the Cause and is rounded out by many community leaders and renowned chefs, all of whom share their passion.
Pig Latin is known festival-wide for Coach’s Cracklin’, which was also a top 10 fan favorite last year. This year, they also have the distinction of offering the only Eat Fit approved dishes at the whole festival.
Chef Andrew Lu, owner of the local pop, Get Your Mom & Dim Sum (@getURdimsum on Instagram) is adding his unique twist to Pig Latin’s menu this year. For the first time ever, Pig Latin will have TWO Eat Fit menu items: “Kimchi and Cracklin’ Slaw” which is Chef Andrew’s personal creation and “Mopped Whole Hog Street Tacos” featuring the whole hog, roasted overnight at the fest.
With Ochsner Hospital for Children’s sponsorship, Pig Latin has been in the top tier of fundraising in the past few years. Come by the Pig Latin tent to see the team in action and support an amazing cause.
