When meat turns from protein to poetic gesture, you know you're ready for a subscription to Meatpaper. This alternative magazine bypasses the standard recipes and reviews that you've come to expect in any food-focused publication and instead chooses to examine the art and ideology behind meat culture.
Inside each issue you can find such intriguing (and possibly disturbing) articles as "The Afterlife of Afterbirth: Notes on eating human placenta" and "Spam in a Can: A brief history of meat in orbit." A year subscription ($28) to this off the wall, on the bone paper can be purchased by visiting the Meatpaper online store.
Ad Hoc at Home
Yes the act of cooking and eating meat is primal, but that doesn't mean we're born knowing how to do it right, which is why it's always best to seek culinary counsel from the professionals. Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc at Home ($29.48 on Amazon) features a large collection family-style recipes and isn't limited purely to meat based meals. Taking in a wide scope of comfort style dishes Ad Hoc offers everything from buttermilk fried chicken to pineapple upside down cake - just what all-you-can-meat eaters need to diversify their palette.
