Just watched Top Chef (Farm Policy episode) and there were so many things that turned my stomach... in the quickfire challenge they made crabs. The crabs were alive and crawling around and the chefs then began to hack them up, put them in the oven to bake while alive, amongst other gross things.
Then the chefs went to an organic and humane" farm.. not sure if that makes me happy or sad.
I stopped watching Top Chef a couple years back when they visited a farm and picked out the animal they were going to cook. They kept saying "circle of life" and "the animals were raised for this purpose." I'm so tired of those same old excuses! Since when does the fulfillment of the circle of life involve artificial insemination, confinement, unncessary death in adolescence, ear and tail-docking, and all those other lovely farm practices that go on at so-called "humane" facilities?
