From North Carolina to Berkeley to Chengdu, a price-point sensitive love affair to die for. (The Cross-Stitched Pig, Part IV)
Excellent stuff, Andrew. But... you don't want to give out your recipe for huiguo rou?
Somehow I missed this when it arrived in my inbox. So happy to have found it now!
An enlightening journey as always my friend.
Hear hear to Andrew’s unified pork theory and Omnivore’s Dilemma reportage on pork production. Well done! We should mention that the Chinese character for home 家 (jiā) is comprised of a pictograph of a roof over a pictograph of a pig. This is how central the pig to Chinese culture.
Beautiful piece. An awful lot of human activity is morally ambiguous. I have read that the sapiens craving for meat is driven by our large brains. A carnivorous viewed in that light is not immoral.
