The Mercado in Florence : Part 1 : Tripe

Courtesy of the same friend, some pictures from Florence.

All the parts of a calf, pig or cow are for sale. Most considered Florentine delicacies. A bit like being at an anatomy lesson said my friend. Special note to be made of the beef nerves and pig lungs.

Shocked animal-eaters and vegetarians should note that this is both eco-friendly and rooted in a culture of respect of the animal by not wasting any of its parts.
