Ooh, my favorite!


The Pig & The Butcher

My crazy-awesome foodie friend (and mentor) shared this video with me a few months ago. I know many of you will be turned away, but I urge you to watch this truly lovely video of butcher Vadim Akimenko. The way he works is an art form, with so much respect and meaning in every movement he makes.

From a 211-pound pig, only a single pound was thrown away.

This may not be something you’re interested in seeing, so let me just say that after watching this I was mesmerized and came away with a whole new respect for the art of butchery. I admire and respect vegetarians, and there is a part of me that wishes I could be one as well. But I am not, and I do not think I ever could be, so that is why it has become so important for me to understand and honor the food that I choose to consume.

Read more here, and pledge to help Akimenko Meats start a sustainable location in Cambridge, MA.

[Thanks, Brian]
