It is NYC meat week, and to celebrate, I think everyone should hit up the farmers markets this weekend and get some sustainably raised, pastured meat!
Sounds like a pretty good idea. (Plus there's bacon!)
Maybe it's time you got some of that duck prosciutto that you always pass by, or maybe it's time to finally get a stranger cut of meat like oxtails or shin. Sometimes with the stranger cuts, you'll put more care or time into making sure that it is tasty or well cooked because you are not as comfortable with the meat, but the results are amaaaazing.
Here is a pretty good article from the New York Times about butcher shops:
The lost art of buying from the butcher
Enjoy meat week!
