Meat Shopping With a Butcher
Butcher's Shop by Annibale Carracci
If you're not already reading the Billfold, the excellent new blog from the Awl family, you should be. Case in point: this awesome post, in which a butcher takes a vegetarian on a meaty tour of Chinatown and Soho. Together, they examine cheap cuts like chicken feet and trotters, discuss the industrial farming system, and get a little goofy.
Logan: Does looking at those eels remind you of The Little Mermaid? Greg: No.
Logan: Not even a little bit? Greg: No.
Logan: Which one of these is Finding Nemo? Greg: None of them. You don't eat clown fish. They're too little.
You might not learn exactly what to do with a money-saving salmon head, but it's still a fun trip.
