Offal Obsessive

This ethics-of-meat-eating thing is kind of on my mind a lot lately. Via Ruhlman, this is a really cool set of videos of Chef Chris Cosentino talking about offal and preparing a really delicious-looking meal thereof, with insightful comments about PETA, the USDA, and other topics along the way.

When you actually look at where your animal comes from, and you actually participate in a slaughter, it kind of changes your perception of "what is meat." And when you're holding a 45-pound lamb as she cries, and you slaughter that animal, you're going to use every last bit of it, because you'd feel like a complete asshole if you didn't.
