fascinating-- in the same way that I used to gaze at dead rabbits hanging in the windows of Italian butchers in the Village. Glad to know someone is keeping these old traditions alive. I guess. Why waste a calf head, after all?

My friend Melissa did a pig head the other day, she would have eagerly stuck her fork in here. It is fascinating, but this was such a traditional, old- fashioned restaurant that the carrot and onion inside of the head were the only vegetables I could see as I looked around me.

Hi, New to this site but glad to be here... until I stumbled upon this story :) The calf heads were just too much for me. The chin was pretty bad too. Are you glad you didn't partake in the feast??

Hi Lara, try to stick to the wine on the site, the chins were a side show. And as a long time vegetarian, partaking was not really in the cards and I was delighted to abstain. Thanks for stopping by.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
