PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –  Manita Burrito takes over Mugshots Coffeehouse, in Fairmount, Thursdays through Sundays.

Partner and co-founder Noam Kugelmass (top photo) says this is a startup configuration for his burrito business, which within the next year or so will find a more permanent brick-and-mortar home.

“The cooking’s happening at my partner Michael Halloran’s restaurant in Old City, Bistro 7.   The food is transported as if Mugshots was a catering venue.  It’s kept cool, it’s heated up, and then it’s finally prepared and served at Mugshots.”

Kugelmass says they hope to open their standalone burrito venue sometime next year.

Over at Wyebrook Farm, in Honey Brook (Chester County), Pa., farmer-owner Dean Carlson hosts a pig dinner on Sunday, November 16th, called a “twad.”

“It’s a word that comes from the Ardèche region of France that they use to describe this communal experience of a pig killing,” Carlson tells What’s Cooking.  “It’s a celebration of the life of the pig, and it’s turned into meat for the community for the winter.”

“When we built The Barn, we thought, ‘Why not put a kitchen in there that we could actually use as a demo kitchen?’ — for tips, hints, recipes, and anything that has to do with creating food.”
