We Londoners have a strange relationship with meat, consuming it voraciously but preferring to ignore its bloody origins and turn up our noses at the rarer cuts. So, in a unique experiment, Time Out decided to buy a cow, cut it up and eat the lot; look out for our series of recipes and cooking tipsBy the time I read this much, I was grossed out enough to shut the book (Time out London) and feel helpless in this hypocrite world. And no, it wasn't because I am a vegetarian, I tested the article on my meat-eating partner and he was equally, if not more, ewwwwwwwwww.
Week one: butchery
Week two: the tongue
Week three: ageing
Double standards at its selfish best when you take a picnic to a farm and play with the pink piglets and then buy beef barbecue kits from the supermarket on your way back home and then cry 'ewwwwwww' when you see an article like this or when you see a 'free range' programme on the TV showing animals being tortured for meat.
The article goes on to say....
So what crossed your mind when you saw the picture and the article?
You’ll feel a sense of satisfaction in having paid respect to the magnificent animal that provided your dinner. So go on – have (eat) a heart.
PS: Surprising that they have decided to leave the cow's brain, eyes etc untouched. The penis wasn't spared though!
