Ian Knauer, the author of The Farm and the same guy who taught you how to make Pad Thai with Marmite in Grub Street’s “Flavor Ammo” feature, is hosting a new series from Take Part called “Tastemakers,” launching tomorrow, a followup to its campaign highlighting the top 100 U.S. businesses committed to local, conscious, and sustainable “food done right.” The first episode starts in Hollywood with a look into Lindy & Grundy, the whole animal butcher shop run by Erika Nakamura and Amelia Posada. Along the way, we learn that Posada was coaxed out of vegetarianism after falling in love with Nakamura in Brooklyn, that the couple has two pet pigs at home, and about the odd and “old school” cuts beautifully arranged in their store. The trio then tackles a huge hog leg and starts making the sausage. Have a look!
