One of the things enjoyed most about the Internet is the social book marking sites and the wide variety of links to great information that would otherwise not get to see.

Butchers, the new culinary rock star…
In addition, one last interesting item found in this article about butchers being the next rock stars of the culinary world. Indeed, as more people are getting back to the roots of food, cuisine, and learning the finer arts this is not a surprise, butchering class was one of the most fun for culinary students. Watching a whole side of beef being broken down in the individual cuts is quite a show. During the culinary apprenticeship, I watched as the Hyatt Regency Hotel New Orleans butcher broke down a side of beef in about an hour or less. Amazing skill and expertise to make all the cuts in record time, and in this article Jackie Burrell of the Contra Cost Times has this article in the San Jose Mercury News: Butchers are suddenly the rock stars of the culinary world
