An interesting read. Chronologically a bit hard to follow though -- I kept wondering why she told every butcher and meat-guru she met she had never cooked meat before, when she had indeed cooked a steak/crown roast/etc in the previous chapter. Also a bit too "crushy" on cute butchers and cute cowboys. Yet I suppose this is what makes her memoir truthful -- sometimes, even after knowing the health risks, environmental impact, and animal ethics, you still eat meat anyway, just because the meat vendors are attractive and encompass the quintessential American ideals of barbecue and beer.
