I read this really quickly, & thought you had used horsemeat. I'm glad it's pigeon & liver, but I guess if you're a carnivore, you need to be able to eat horse & pigeon (I still haven't gotten over reading 'Black Beauty'), I console myself w/ the thought that the birds don't seem quite as intelligent, or maybe it's the fact they don't have beautiful eyes? Your pates are lovely...

Word. I am one of the lucky ones to benefit from this boy's culinary artistry, besides those who attended a DR.com picnic a couple of years ago. Can't thank him enough for his talent--that accompanies his civic pride.

Had the great and absolute pleasure today of watching him break down a Berkshire hog today that some friends and I purchased. And I got a glimpse of stuffed trotter that he was braising that looked great and smelled fabulous. We are so lucky to have him in this area.

I will always look up to and respect Julien Shapiro for having the skill, the guts, and the tenacity to enter - and damned near win - this competition.

The rest of us can only dream. You were right there.

Very, very few people can honestly say they're one of the best in the world in what they do - in any field.
