Poppy's people are carrying on the traditions of Louisiana's wholly local but universally celebrated food, from farm to table, and sometimes barroom! Poppy roams the State to find the folks whose inspiration and innovation are taking the abundant wealth of Louisiana's food culture into the future. Let's eat!

What’s The Beef With Meat?

To eat meat or not to eat meat? That is the question. On this week’s show, we examine sustainable farming and butchery practices and the ethical constraints of consuming meat in the 21st century. We begin with James Beard award-winning food writer Corby Kummer, who weighs in on the topic of meat and morality.

Then, we speak with one of the world’s most famous butchers, Dario Cecchini. He’s the 8th generation of a family of butchers who have operated out of the same small Italian shop for two and half centuries.

Finally, author and historian Lawrence N. Powell shares with us the story of the 1873 U.S. Slaughterhouse Cases, and the Supreme Court decision that had as much to do with post-Reconstruction segregation as it did with slaughterhouses.
