Meet Alison Brierley: She Loves Preparing Traffic Casualties
Artist Alison Brierley who is currently pregnant maintains a blog where among other things, she talks about her love for dead animals she finds on the side of the road, and lately she wants it more than ever. Yummy! From her blog post:
I am a road kill recycler, cook and wild food forager. I love being creative and injecting humour into what I ’rustle up’! I enjoy the challenge of using the body parts other cooks don’t like to use! This is one of many creations - the ‘Foot & Fadge’ terrine made from an organic pig’s trotter and uterus with goji berries! I didn’t serve this pork terrine on Come Dine With Me though… maybe I should have! lol. I often hold impromptu workshops at camps and small festivals, teaching the joys of Road Kill Preparation. It always amazes me how squeamish your average carnivore is! I love what I do. I am a very happy scavenger and I dislike waste.
And here’s what she said in a recent interview about the obvious concerns from this lifestyle:
“It’s more gamey than other meat and I love the taste. I also don’t have to feel guilty about eating it because I know it’s had a completely free range and natural life. Because I’m pregnant I’ve been extra careful when handling the carcasses and I always wear gloves. I don’t want to risk any infections that could hurt the baby.”
Who’s with her???
