Notes on Pig Pickin’

Record #:
The former ECU English faculty member educated readers on the origins of pig picking, a dining tradition she declared was a socio-economic equalizer. As Faulkner disclosed, North Carolina can almost claim authorship of this tradition. Authorship can be claimed as far as the tradition starting in the South. The dividing line—the Mason-Dixon line, that is—can be found far north of it, with this Southern tradition having caught on in at least one town in Pennsylvania.
