Meat Makes Our Planet Thirsty

amalcolm Re:Shill (545 comments)

I don't expect everyone to share my opinion. Where did I say that? My opinion is however, and I can and will defend this, is that there is so much more to food, flavors, cuisine and eating than a simple steak. To deny that is to deny centuries of culinary tradition and excellence. If you look, or taste, beyond the obvious, you may find the experience rewarding.
