OH my word, sorry but doesn't look very good :-(

I'm really a fan of using as many parts of an animal as possible...seems respectful to me. But I just can't get on board with the whole foot/trotter craze that seems to be sweeping New York these days!

I couldn't agree more! I've never tried them, nor do I have any desire to do so.

Where we live you often see pied de cochon on the menu at restaurants. A friend ordered it one time and I'm not sure if it was poorly cooked or what, but there was a ton of cartilage and really nothing there to eat.
Interesting to hear that restaurants in New York are serving up this cut of meat and that, I'm assuming, people are ordering it.
Have you tried it yet? ;)

We had a cheese and charcuterie tasting yesterday at work and thought about you (you'll see the pictures on Flickr)
The guy who brought the goodies has a shop in Rome so I know where to go next to prepare my piece for la Fête du Fromage...

Sounds delicious! I always look forward to your Fête du Fromage entries.
