More beauty

I was lucky enough to be invited to see Berkshire pigs being broken down by skilled butchers. Just look at these magnificent rib chops. Alas most of that beautiful, tasty fat will be cut off. The butcher said that even a mere centimetre of this luscious makes some people believe that they are destined for a heart attack. Has no-one read Fat: An Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient, with Recipes? The re-education continues.

Here are legs for my friends Mark and Bruce who have a new book, Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter dedicated to this cut, I know the fat wouldn't scare them off. This post is a short and sweet post as I am off to Paris tomorrow and have a thousand and one things to do before I jump on the plane. Once in the city of light I will try to post more often.

OMG... That is amazingly beautiful. To your question about reading your books? YES, PEOPLE ARE! A friend of mine turned me on to it and now it's #1 on my list of books to get. I've been a proponent of fat and bones for a while now (yes my family thinks I'm weird but the food is good) and I'm glad someone is now writing about it. I'm spreading the religion.
