Here's a link to a lyrical, sensual and slightly disturbing essay by James Sturz over at Leite's Culinaria. I just finished reading it and thought I would share. It's a beautiful, thought-provoking piece about the pleasures of eating meat by a clearly talented writer. And of course, for anyone who hasn't heard of Leite's Culinaria, it's a one of those places in the Internet where you can always find something interesting to peruse, so do a little exploring while you're there. It'll definitely be time well spent.
