Let the Battle Begin!!Posted: March 1, 2012
A few weeks ago I texted an old friend/ ex-coworker the following:
Me: 100 lb. Halibut! Using the bones for fumet, cheeks, roasted collar. Whatcha got for me, meat boy?!??
Tim: I made some sausage with ghost chilis and scorpion chilis!
Austin: Today Simon Winchester admired my Oyster tattoo.. Whatcha got, beeferoni?
Tim: My meat saws.
Tim: Lamb flank and castelvetranos. What you got, fish food?!
Austin: Leftover chicken soup 😦
Tim: Victory!! 🙂
Austin: (early the next morning) Redemption: Maine Blood Clams, red color due to high amounts of hemoglobin.
Tim: Damn! Those are awesome!
..And so this went on for a few weeks before we decided that it would be a fun (and more productive) idea to put a blog together rather than geek out all day and text each other like teenage girls (actually we still do that).
So here we are! Fishmonger vs. Butcher! Me (Austin)- the fishmonger and Tim- the butcher will post weekly articles, recipes, raves and rants towards the food we work with and the culture that goes along with it.
