anyone know where to find this seasonal delicacy? there was some at the market but i'd much rather put something like this in knowledgeable hands.
I haven't seen them in a few weeks. It may just be that the season's over, but I'm wondering if anyone's come across them recently. Thanks!
Perhaps imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery, but I was surprised to see that the Washington Post just started a "Bottom Shelf" column:
Somehow I found myself on the Wikipedia page for the Isle of Man, a small island in the Irish Sea that seems like just about the most awesome non-tropical place on the planet. There are maybe 80,000 inhabitants, and there's also a breed of indigenous lamb called Manx Loaghtan that usually have either 4 or 6 horns, the meat is supposedly leaner than Australian and American lamb and frankly, I've never heard of it so my curiosity is piqued.
I contacted a company that sells different cuts, but shipping will be about $150, and so far the dude has only quoted me for the filet which is $60/lb - aka too rich for my blood. Not sure how this would even work, but is anyone interested in trying some? I'm in NYC.

I know that we Serious Eaters keep things pretty classy 'round these parts, but is there anything you crave (besides a nap) after making sex? For me, nothing beats a refreshing bowl of gazpacho to energize me for round two. Maybe it's the vegetables, fortifying me with their nutrients and sexy PETA-approved vitamins. Or maybe it's just the spice, which permeates my psyche and gets me in a fiery mindset. For whatever reason, in the winter I lean towards bison chili.
Looking for a local replacement for Benton's, which to me has the richest hickory flavor of any bacon I've come across. What's the smokiest bacon you've tried from within a reasonable distance? Let's say, within the East Coast north of...Virginia?
