that's my left hand (recognize the scar?). the pic is from the butchery half of novella's and my class, the complete rabbit, in brooklyn earlier this month. marlow & daughters was kind enough to let us take over the shop at the end of the night, and adam the (fantastic) butcher stayed late to observe and then got pulled into the madness when i mentioned that a rabbit carcass without legs or shoulders is somewhat analogous to the carcass of nearly any four-legged mammal, such as a pig or lamb.
he jumped at the opportunity to pull out this half of a pig and together we pointed out the different cuts and described their uses. it was pretty fantastic--a majorly special treat for the students.
