    VIDEO: Chris Cosentino makes porchetta from pigs's head

    Primal Fuel
    ETA: removed tmi

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porchetta

    This video is fascinating. While I currently do no 'whole animal' eating and eat no organ meat or blood, my feelings and thinking on those foodstuffs have changed dramatically in the last couple of weeks. I'm starting to crave things I've never had. There's a burning desire to head to Incanto in SF (Cosentino's restaurant) and I just found out that we have Abattoir in Atlanta. It's part of the Star Provisions group (think: the renowned Bacchanalia). Eating there asap is now a priority for me.

    Anyway, back to the topic.

    Very interesting... I always wondered how to cook a pig's head (seriously... though it's not something I've spent a lot of time wondering about...). I want to try eating it now...

    Wow. I really would like to try this even though the video is mentally a little hard to get past. Don't know why, typically I am not very squeamish. I wonder if it tastes like bacon. ;-)

    I'm also typically not squeamish (human anatomy w/ cadaver, lots of animal dissection in various bio classes) but *damn*, the thought of eating fifth quarter/offal really has always freaked me out. Until now. I keep watching that video and I *want* to make this. And eat it. Which really sucks because we keep kosher at home. lol.

    Tripe and sweetbreads are about the only things I can't bring myself to try (for the moment ). I'm actually enjoying liver pate for lunch right now.
