Love Meat Tender, Yves-Marie Le Bourdonnec Reveals Art of French Cut at Meat Hook, Brooklyn, November 1

Instead of comparative studies in French versus American philosophy, Yves-Marie Le Bourdonnec and Tom Mylan will illustrate the difference between French and American Butchering Styles at Meat Hook in Brooklyn.

Besides trade sessions, they decided to show their oratory and knife skills for the benefit of all those who love meat tender in a 6: 30 PM session on Monday, November 1, 2010. Their fireworks will be followed by a tasting accompanied by beers from Brooklyn Brewery and Natural Wines courtesy of Jenny & Francois...

Price is $25 per person, you can reserve via Brooklyn Kitchen Event Page...

Since I will be attending, expect to read my first and second impressions the following day.

Yves-Marie Le Bourdonnec, the Meat "Magician" of Asnieres opened his latest butcher shop, Le Couteau D'Argent to great acclaim in 2009.

Ariane Daguin of D’Artagnan will be serving as translator and master of ceremonies that day.

D'Artagnan is the proud sponsor of this royal encounter.


I will pick Yves-Marie le Bourdonnec's brains after the event. After barding, resulting interview should be delivered on Wednesday, November 3.
