Your questions can't be answered because this is a rebroadcast of an earlier show.

Another question, I am doing a pig roast and my client was hoping to have an organic pig. Do your guests know of any place in northern NJ that would supply?

I am a caterer (A Gracious Event - shameless plug) and I hate those little bags of carrots that were peeled weeks before you eat them. I serve peeled carrots with the greens on them at all my parties that have children and call them "Bugs Bunny Carrots".
The kids love them and we always run out
