Meat French Cuts, Yves Marie Le Bourdonnec Shares His Savoir Faire at Meat Hook, NY, Oct 31-Nov 4

Globetrotting French butcher Yves-Marie Le Bourdonnec of Le Couteau d'Argent will share his savoir faire as the guest of Tom Mylan at The Meat Hook in Brooklyn, New York from October 31st to November 4, 2010.
