the whole beast
In the past, say, three years, foodists have become increasingly blasé about being presented with a freshly killed whole beast and a big knife. Butchered a whole pig? Been there done that. Give me the cow.
When SF chef John Fink founded "The Whole Beast," his vision was to celebrate the art of cooking over fire a whole animal that's been humanely grown and prepared in a holistic manner while paying special attention to animal husbandry. Okay, what does this all mean? Basically, from pig to cow, a whole beast is cooked with no waste produced.
