SCRAPPLEFEST This Saturday At Reading Terminal Market

SCRAPPLEFEST Reading Terminal Market

WARNING: All you vegans, vegetarians and pork haters out there might not want to read any further!  On Saturday, November 2nd, Reading Terminal Market ( 12th and Arch Street) will celebrate a signature Philly delicacy, SCRAPPLE! The mysterious meat dates back to the 17th century when the recently arrived Dutch started frying it up for breakfast. Just like a link of sausage, it’s made from scraps of pork, cornmeal and spices which is then formed into a solid mass, sliced and then fried. Some would think of scrapple as the poor man’s meat because of its mysteriously low end ingredients, but surprising scrapple is experiencing a renaissance of sorts thanks largely to celebrity chefs frying it up gourmet style in high end restaurants all around the world!  Scrapplefest begins at 10 a.m., lasting until  4 p.m.  You can taste all the scrapple you can handle from six regional producers and even watch some live demonstrations for interesting ways to cook it.  There will be a scrapple recipe contest, live music and much more. Admission is free!
