Why You Should be Eating More Wild Pigs Right Now

@shyabetes - Yes, you are under the right impression. I mention in the article that regulations vary state-by-state by by and large, restaurants most often aren't able to access "hunted" wild game. That's why I felt it was so important to let people know that individually, we can take advantage of the opportunity that most restaurants cannot.

@Katiepotato: here's where I initially sourced some wild hog, over at D'artagnan's site: http://www.dartagnan.com/Free-Range-Wild-Boar-Foreshanks/ZBOSK002-1,default,pd.html. I had their link in my initial article but it may have gotten cut to save room :)

@meatguy, @boomer56, @AnAngryDog - most definitely agree that with ANY meat, but most especially unregulated (no USDA involvement) you should follow set culinary rules for cooking.

Both times I've enjoyed fantastic-tasting meat, so I'll always be a proponent of it.

Jamie's Guide to LA's Must-Eat Mexican Food

It pains me to say this as a New Yorker, but I'll just be real here: LA's Mexican food scene is about a thousand times better than New York's, in terms of depth, breadth, and sheer scope. Every time I'm in LA, I go on a serious Mexican marathon, scrambling desperately to cram all of the city's tacos down my throat in one fell swoop. This has lead to some great gastrointestinal discomfort, but also an ever-expanding roster of favorites, and not just in the taco category. Every time I visit, these are the places I plan my trip around. More
