I could go on a long speech about the use of food in literature and how in children’s literature it is typically a substitute for sexuality and sex… but let’s save that for a later date. Or just the grad school classroom.
For Christmas I bought my boyfriend nearly 100 dollars of meat. And not just any old meat, but exotic meats -- antelope, kangaroo, elk, alligator, boar… to name a few. I went with simplicity when making each of these dishes because I wanted the flavor of the meat to really come out. Though the idea of eating wild boar burgers was a little strange, each meat so far was very tasty -- I think I’m an exotic meat convert. I can’t help but wonder if I lived in movie-world (and rich, of course) if I would have been one of the first people to snag a ticket to the Endangered Animal dinner in "The Freshman."
Without further delay, I proudly present to you: FOOD PORN FOR CARNIVORES.
