Chicken! Sat, Aug 22, 2020
When I lived in Moldova for almost 2 years, there were a ton of amazing people who made due with what they had. It’s the poorest country in Europe, and so some areas have it harder than others. One family taught me how to catch and cook chicken. Reenactment in a Moldovan apartment below:
At the time, it was the best source of protein available. Since that time, I’m glad to have discovered a lot more plant protein and other more humane sources of meat-like food. I’m hopeful that Moldova and other areas of the world are already making similar transitions—for the sake of the chicken, but also because it was a TON of work to do it the old fashioned way. Great memories though, and glad we get to learn and improve and progress as a human species, and find sources of food that are more sustainable & economic. Exciting times!
