    Really cold weather makes me crave the occasional short ribs and other rich dishes, but I agree with SField on the desirability of leaner cuts and smaller quantities. If I had the time to shop and access to really first class fish, I would eat fish every day.

    i cut way down on meat maybe 4-5 years ago (i'm old, remember?). it's a pity. i used to be able to eat barbecue for dinner every night. now i eat it once every couple months. same thing for good hamburgers. really love them. ms. fg brought home some lamb chops for me to cook for dinner the other night. nice fat rim on them that i seared crisp before cooking the chops rare-medium rare. the first one was like the best thing i'd ever tasted, but couldn't finish the second. i just pick my spots now. every once in a while i'll get a craving and enjoy; the rest of the time i kind of lay low. mostly fish, chicken and vegetables.

    The fat in chicken can be extremely appealing. It doesn't have the heft of beef or lamb fat or even pork (which I prefer to both lamb and beef.) Chicken can still have great depth of flavor while being light and has a nice sweetness in the fat.

    Don't know why it just clicked now, but how is young Master Matthew planning on avoiding hell after that pig butchering class he took in France?

    This thread makes me want to ask what everyone's favorite animal flesh is. If you could only eat the flesh of one animal, for the rest of your life, what would that animal be? For me it is clearly the pig.

    We've had this poll before. I really like veal but pork definitely offers the most variety and i think i'd have to go with that. I'd miss really good roast chicken.

    ^ Scallops. Or if that's too low on the great chain of being, maybe lamb.

    Fish, or is that too broad?

    Scallops is not too low but would you not tire of them? I picked pork because, as G33k noted, you can do so much with it.

    I would miss many things, foie gras, steak tartar, shell fish....but if I had to pick, pork wins hands down for me.


    Too broad. That's like saying, "Land mammals."

    Yeah, I guess it's a short-sighted choice because I don't eat scallops as often as I'd like and so have never even been close to tiring of them. I certainly can imagine tiring of pork, actually. So maybe my real choice is lamb.

    pork, of course. followed by chicken. followed by "fish". would "fish" include shellfish? then i might move it up. toss in crab and oysters and i could be happy.
