Neat trick: what do Italian butchers do with unsold carpaccio? Figuring out ur butchers schedule can get you some really good deals. They don't freeze back carpaccio and pretty sure it goes into stock or meatpies. Pre-sliced jerkey at a discount. I got 12$/kg carpaccio quality meat!
@Francispouliot Brilliant! Also fish heads or bone carcasses from the butcher are typically free or very cheap. I use them to make Tucker's food as well as broths for soups or curries.
@Francispouliot educational *and* delicious
