December 2008

The good rain in recent months has been a godsend for farmers of grass-fed cattle, which is news we like: grass is better than grain for the cows and makes healthier beef because it’s higher in omega-3s. Sadly, too few restaurants tell you what the beef is fed on, but we like what they do with it at 42 Bannerman Trattoria, anyway: they roast a ribeye and serve it with pumpkin and an amaretto reduction. Pork is a little scarcer in the lead-up to Christmas because so much is going into ham making, but you’ll still find it at the Chinese Noodle Restaurant in Chinatown — it’s crunchy, sweet and shredded, served with special sauce and mini pancakes.
