People get grossed out when Jamey Lionette talks about Saturday’s first-ever Local Food Festival featuring a live demonstration on breaking down a whole hog to cook every last bit.

“That’s not gross, it’s a natural transition from farm to food,” says Lionette, a festival organizer. “It’s a wonderful thing we’re trying to highlight.”

The festival, which organizers are touting as the largest of its kind in the nation, will also highlight local farms, chefs and vendors. All the dishes at the zero-waste, free event will not only be under $5 but cooked by both celebrity and neighborhood chefs.

“We could get all the high-end chefs in here, and we have some of them like Barbara Lynch, but we want people from different neighborhoods to show incredible food.

“We have people from Roxbury and Dorchester, people you might not know if they were not here."
