Watch Julie Powell Butcher a Lamb


Now that you’ve seen Tom Mylan roast a pig, check out Julie & Julia’s Julie Powell butchering a lamb, if you have the stomach for it. The self-described “meat snob” is promoting her new book, Cleaving: A Story of Marriage, Meat, and Obsession (out in December), about her apprenticeship at Fleisher’s, among other things (there’s an excerpt in today’s Guardian). During the demo, she describes butchers as “corny, dorky preadolescents with knives,” even if Time Out is the latest to point out that they’re treated like celebrities.
