LOVE (!!!) the step by step on how to kill and clean a chicken. You say this is not for the faint of heart, but I have to say, this is about as sanitized as it gets. And it is important for people to realize where their food comes from and what goes into getting it to the table.

Thanks Julia, I couldn't agree more.

Great links, Dan - as usual! I'm currently working up the nerve to check out the chicken thing...

Daniel said...

Audrey, thank you for sharing, much appreciated!

And bashtree, don't worry too much about the chicken post--it is well-worth reading. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for the link! Great cheap recipe with plenty of leftovers. Perfect for CK. ;)

Loved the chicken thing. I saw it before because my good friend Rebecca (I've mentioned her to you before - you, she and my other friend Priscilla, the ones who changed my life in food...) is also doing the Project Food Blog thing. Still going too. Anyway, that chicken post was amazing and yes, actually pretty "clean." The only picture I could see people being aghast at is the one with the knife to the neck, where you can see the chicken's face. Poor thing. But a good lesson and reminder for us all.

Love the posts from Kate and Kristen too. Good stuff!
