    No, that's not what I'm saying.

    You're making the assumption that their offal and tough cuts they had to braise were bad... their farming practices probably produced some very good meat. They just didn't get the tender cuts.

    Very TFL meal.

    You need to scrape the bone more cleanly. Get a cheaper knife and have at it.

    Ya. I need to use string next time, I think.


    First is sautéed cod with a cod "cake" and clam chowder. Second is lamb with beans and Rosemary. Third is Valencay with beet syrup, beet greens, roasted beets, and beet powder. All from TFL cookbook.

    Just use a german knife. String won't get it clean enough.

    I scraped it with my Shun, but it wouldn't get any cleaner. I'm serving this dish for 6 on Friday; I'll have to experiment some more for cleaning the bones. Everything else came out great.

    You just have to be persistent. Don't use a Shun, not because it can't do the job but because you are likely to chip the edge.

    I thought it looked rather phallic as well.
