Nose to Tail - why we celebrate it!
The enjoyment of meat is a precious commodity and high-quality animals a real treasure. Reason enough, then, to take a look at a movement that shows special appreciation for animals. We are talking about the "nose-to-tail" movement.
"Nose to tail" means practically from head to tail and means that not only the classic noble cuts have to end up on the plate. Rather, it is about the holistic processing of animals such as heifers, pigs, chicken and Co. because this is where delicacies are hidden that have now almost completely fallen into oblivion.
Since we at Fitmeat really appreciate high-quality meat enjoyment, it's no wonder that we're really celebrating the re-emerging trend and want to give you an incentive to do the same.
Offal is much better than its reputation
A trend is coming back
In the past, it was perfectly normal to use them or to enjoy animals as a whole culinary experience. Over time, however, this changed, until at some point almost exclusively noble cuts of the respective animals were used.
The rest was used either for the production of sausages or dog food. In the meantime, however, the trend is coming back and the perception is changing significantly.
A short history of offal
From poor man's food to star dish
In the past, offal was considered a typical poor man's food, because its reputation was not exactly prestigious. In the meantime, however, gourmets have rediscovered their enjoyment. Offal and the like have even made it into top-star restaurants. Why?
Because they were completely underestimated in their multifaceted taste as well as in their structure. Because properly prepared, almost all parts of the animal are edible. With an intense flavour of their own and many hitherto completely unknown aromas, they cause absolute enthusiasm among gourmets.
How healthy are offal really?
Nose to Tail Movement
Generally speaking, however, these little delicacies are real nutrient bombs, packed with iron, zinc and healthy fats. Eating offal can therefore have a positive effect on the immune system and the production of red blood cells.
Of course, the same applies here as with almost all other dishes: always enjoy in moderation. People who already consume a high amount of minerals, as well as pregnant women, are advised not to eat offal.
This is why offal is brilliant
Why we celebrate the nose-to-tail movement
On the other hand, it's not only the noble cuts that have an ingenious flavour of their own, and offal also provides plenty of nutrients. In addition - and this point should not be ignored either - the consumption of offal is relatively inexpensive compared to the Edelcuts.
Our conclusion: Offal - offer many aromatic delights.
