I've had veal from a kosher butcher before.

I have not. It's funny, because we used to get eggs from a friend who ran a farm located at the Marin waste disposal facility - there they had a farm, of sorts, which contained chickens, geese, pigs, and a menagerie of other birds which had been abandoned there. She used to feed the animals produce brought in from the markets, which resulted in eggs who's yolks were orange from the carotenes and spread out to the minimal amount of looking like a hemisphere. They were the richest eggs I ever ate.

Hard choice but I guess chicken because you can pretty much variate endless with it and goes with almost everthing.

Beef.

Not really as versatile as chicken, but so much tastier.

Plus, you can eat it raw, which you definitely can't do with pork or chicken. Yum.

Beef, because...

Steak!!!
Cottoletta Milanese (Beef/Veal same animal!)
Carpaccio
Beef Chow Fun
Burgers
Pastrami
Galbi

Would miss the following from pork, and would have to settle for the one in brackets...

Iberico, Proscuitto di Parma, Jambon Bayonne (Bresola)
York Ham (cold roast beef slices)
British bangers (Beef sausages )


I'd really miss pates and other offal based dishes, because I really don't like cow kidneys, liver etc. Chicken liver pate is probably the only decent thing to come from that animal...

Oh and damn no prawns, no lobster, no crab, no smoked salmon, no eggs benedict.........

Though I like beef more, I'd choose pork solely for variety. Not a fan of pork chops at all, but sausage, bacon, ham, etc etc etc. is great.

Is that really a good deal where you live? I pay $1.19 for a dozen Grade A large.

$5 for organic free range eggs is a pretty average price anywhere, but a pretty good price in NYC. I assume gome means organic free-range if he's dealing directly with a farmer/CSA.

yes. Normally they're $6-7 a dozen in the grocery stores here. The cheaper ones (not organic, free range, etc.) are (I think) around $4.

It would be hard to select one meat, but if I did it would be pork.

Seriously? $5 for something you can raise in a small backyard? Interesting.
