on eating meaty

February 6, 2010

This is Jake Dickson.

He’s Zoe’s boss over at Dickson’s Farmstand Meats in Chelsea Market, and a recent subject for a profile I’m writing for my food journalism class. I had a really wonderful time taking a tour of his store and becoming an enlightened meat consumer, and want to tell you guys about it. After recently reading Michael Pollen and looking into Jonathan Safron Foer’s new book, Eating Animals, I’ve been struggling with the ethics behind eating meat. Although we mostly eat vegetarian at this apartment, I really, really truly love eating meat. Jake took me back to the meat freezer and with the smell of the meat and the spices, all concentrated within a very small space, I was convinced that Heaven would be a freezer, and that I would be happy to spend eternity here, assuming I had a very warm jacket and means to actually eat all this meat. Anyway. I digress.
