There are 50 ways to butcher an animal. A "correct" way? Fat chance. Which makes things really interesting. “Most cultures that haven’t been globalized, like say the Japanese, give a lot of value to premium cuts, but they also deem every single part desirable,” says Tom Mylan, co-owner of The Meat Hook in Brooklyn. “It’s much more nose to tail in other cultures outside the United States.” With that, here’s the breakdown of six key butchering cultures — and how it all translates to your home kitchen.
