It's once again time to get the previous year's top pork moments into formation.
Every Tuesday, the Dose of Vitamin P column celebrates my favorite pork dish from the previous week. I live in Los Angeles, one of the world’s best places to eat, and was lucky enough to travel to places like Hawaii (Kauai and Honolulu), Canada (Banff and Calgary), Colombia (Cali), Mexico City, and several trips within California, spanning from San Diego to the Napa Valley. Along the way, I took hundreds of hopeful bites. Look back at my 10 favorite pork dishes from 2018.
