Could you look a potato in the eye  and tell it that you intend to kill it?

tis true.......

Why only this morning, I was entrusted with the care of a cute baby cabbage. And some carrots. And an onion.

If only the dressing hadn't jumped out of the fridge at me............. total carnage.



























But bloody good coleslaw.

mmmm yes ive heard similar tales via my kooky sister that vegetables breathe...and that if you listen real close you can sometimes hear a little squeal when you cut things from their vines.

On the otherhand a certain young lad looks like he may be harbouring some animal rights feelings...

He announced the other day that he thinks that animals should just kill themselves coz its mean if we kill them so we can eat them. Then we can only eat the ones that are already dead.

Its true, plants do emit a scream when we cut them when they are still in the garden.  Its been scietifically proven.  And of course plants breath  How else do they absorb the CO2 from the atmosphere

apparently scientists have done a lot of study, and they can now hear when plants are making distress sounds, but they have to use very sensative equipment hooked up to plants of a type with large leaves and good climber, especially vitus vinifera....


that's right... they can hear it through the grape vine

saw another one, kid goat.
seems a bit strange to have series that does the same things time and agian, the only difference is the type of animal.
the killing will always be the same, the butchering almost the same, just the cooking will vary.
plus.. all the animals are very young, less than a year old.

what is the reason for this format? sure i think people need to be aware of where and how their meat gets into the shops, and to show the process start to finish is good.
but it seems the british tv gets an idea and it has to be done to the point of excess.
hugh fearnly-whitingstall started the idea of showing the full process with river cottage, gordon ramsey followed on with his backyard animals, then jamie oliver went a whole step further and showed carefully edited horror shock film of factory farming to convince everyone to pay three times the price for free range organic meat, and recently hugh was back with a show to train a vegetarian lady to be a butcher and appreciate and eat meat,
and now we have an almost documentary style program, doing the same idea, but with a twist of "baby" animals and a live audience.
is it because the audience the program is aimed at don't understand what happens, don't care what happens, or something else?
i'd be interested how many kiwi folk don't have any idea how meat turns up at the supermarket?
i would think almost everyone knows the process.... maybe not...
