How animal insides became a gastronomic outsider

It is mentioned in The Taming of best mens canada goose parka the Shrew, and Dickens waxed lyrical about its virtues. In his diary of October 24 1662, Samuel Pepys wrote: “So home and dined there with my wife upon a most excellent dish of tripes canada goose coat 1000 bulbs promo of my canada goose coat $5000 can i put my canada goose jacket in the dryer no credit check signature loans own directing, covered with mustard.”

But offal has fallen out of fashion in the past 25 years, according to the Meat and Livestock Commission. It says that in 1977, 105,000 tonnes of offal were sold in the UK, but by 2002 this had fallen to 19,500 tonnes. Around 14,500 tonnes was exported for human consumption.

Pepys was not the only fan of the stomachs of cattle: in 1945 Britain boasted 500 tripe dressers. Now there are only a handful. Phil Saunders of the Meat and Livestock Commission said: “It reflects the changing eating habits and the increased affluence of people in this country. People have more money, so they would prefer a steak to offal, which is a cheap form of protein.

“People do not realise what they canada goose coat 1000 bulbs are missing – devilled kidneys are lovely with bacon and egg. It is very fortifying.”

Mr Saunders said it also reflected a decline in general cooking skills. “Over the last couple of years people are taking less time to prepare food – they are money-rich but time- poor. They will just bung something in the microwave for five minutes.”

He criticised the public perception that just because offal had come from the inside of an animal, it was unpleasant. “There needs to be a sea change in its image so that the decline can be reversed,” he said. “Lamb’s testicles are considered a delicacy in Provence.”

John Walker, who works for Halifax market in West Yorkshire, said: “The last stall selling elder [cow’s udder] closed about three or four years ago.

“It is supply and demand, and I think the BSE disaster to some extent has led to the change.”

The restaurateur Paul Heathcote said: “The only area we have seen an increase is with calves’ liver,” he said. “Since BSE, we have really struggled even with things like steak and kidney pie, which are no longer fashionable.

“There are more vegetarians and people eating fish and lighter meals. The perception with offal is that it is heavier.

“We do have lamb sweetbreads on the menu sale, but there is always a limited market. It is canada goose coat 0f still very spasmodic.”

He said the rejection of offal was largely generational. “I believe people can be coaxed to eat different things, and it is about how things are packaged.

“If there is anything I have achieved, it is to make black pudding fashionable over the last six or seven years.”

But at the award-winning St John restaurant in Farringdon, London, the menu leans heavily towards offal. Dishes include roast bone marrow salad, deep fried calves’ brains, rolled pig’s spleen, and squirrel with offal on toast (available in February and March).

The restaurant’s motto is Nose to Tail. Its menu was once described as “stuffed with the bits of animals that are usually used to frighten children”.

But even this restaurant offers a vegetarian main course and and starter.

Monique O’Brien, the restaurant’s manager, said: “We have found a British revival for this sort of food. No part of the animal is left unused, and it is making berlin film festival ends canada can you machine wash canada goose jacket goose jacket sponsorship amid people consider offal again.”
