Offal and Other Meats

The range of meats available in our local supermarket is impressive and occasionally unsettling. A few photos of surprising cuts are below.

Around the Easter weekend, rabbit appeared in a separate freezer unit. The unit included whole rabbits, headless cuts, and the heads alone. I have no idea who would buy just the head, but at 25c for two they were not expensive. The limited number of packs of rabbit suggests few buyers.

Offal is considered part of Lyon based food culture.
