Carnivore Chic : Toronto's Susan Bourette
Toronto author Susan Bourette was a vegetarian for five weeks and 37 hours.
That was a result of spending a week at a slaughterhouse, tormented by the squeals of pigs being herded to their death.
But it made Bourette wonder: can you eat meat with a clear conscience?
She's written about it in her very funny and informative memoir, Carnivore Chic: From Pasture to Plate, a Search for the Perfect Meat.
On her search for superior meat, Bourette crosses the country and takes readers behind the bucolic facade of cattle farms, on an Inuit whale hunt, behind the butcher-shop counter and into the kitchens of five-star restaurants.
It's her quest to be a "compassionate carnivore."
Barbara-Jo's Books To Cooks in Vancouver is hosting Susan at its popular Six O'Clock Salon on Tuesday, March 18 at 6 PM.
Cost is $45.00, which includes a signed copy of Susan's book. Call 604-688-6755 to register.
