Where to buy it


After spending a week at a slaughterhouse, tormented by the squeals of pigs being herded to their death, author Susan Bourette decided to go vegetarian. She lasted five weeks and 37 hours. Dissatisfied with chickpeas and lentils, Bourette wondered, Isn't there a way to have my meat and a clear conscience too? On a quest for superior meat, Bourette takes readers behind the bucolic facade of the cattle farm, along on an Inuit whale hunt, behind the butcher-shop counter, and into the kitchens of five-star restaurants. Humorous yet authoritative, Carnivore Chic celebrates meat and explores what it means to be a compassionate carnivore.
