A fellow Sugar staffer recently shared stories about her raw meat woes. She can't look at — or touch — raw meat without getting grossed out and feeling nauseated. In particular, skin-on chicken makes her skin crawl, and the juice from red meat leaves her queasy. This got me to wondering: how many of you feel the same way?
I recently went to a fully catered wedding where the main course was a piece of steak and several shrimp. What should have been a lovely meal was in fact a disaster. The steak was beautifully seared and wonderfully plated — this pic does it no justice — however the steak itself was nearly inedible. I like my steak on the medium-to-rare side, but when I cut it open it was cold and raw on the inside! In fact, it looked more like ahi tuna than it did beef. I politely pointed this out to my server and several minutes later the same plate returned; it had obviously only been reheated in a microwave!
At this point, I decided that it wasn't worth causing a scene, and just went without. But what about you? What would you have done?
Berlin-based Russian artist Julia Kissina's early photographs bring a new meaning to the phrase Meathead. In her 1997 series, entitled Feen — which means fairies in German — she shows several young girls and ladies wearing raw meat as wigs. That's right, they're meat hair fairies. I've included several of my faves below, but be sure to check out the entire series. Also worth noting are her series of sculpted ground meat and faces surrounded by meat.
