Edible Brooklyn


Haven’t we all been there? You’re an Earth Mother-type, you’ve had your all-natural home birth, and you’re about to eat the placenta — only to realize that it’s, like, ew. Not to worry! Just send that placenta on over to Placenta Healing Arts NYC to have it made into supplement capsules. The company’s owner points out that the process will make actually eating that placenta easier: “It seems a little less personal than eating a piece of meat that you know, came from your body.” To which we say, buck up, potential placenta eaters! You could confit it, or braise it. Or just sauté it in bacon fat. Aren’t there any enterprising chefs in New York that will take a cue from San Francisco’s Daniel Patterson and show Brooklynites what to do? [Brooklyn Based]
