Off to see the seals

Although it doesn’t use the tired cliche that butchers are now the rockstars of the food world, Alex Williams’ article in the NYT about the popularity of butchering classes does say that many of them “have achieved a kind of microfame,” which I think is closer to the truth. I certainly recognized Ryan Farr in the little photo on the NYT home page. Of course, the pig’s head next to him helped put it in context. I may not have recognized him in a glamour shot.

I won’t be eating any seals today, unlike the Governor General of Canada, but I’m sure I’ll find something else to eat Coastside.
