“Imagine you’re a guest at a fancy dinner party. You’re sitting down at a beautiful table, enjoying the conversation, drinking fine wine and eating a delicious stew. In fact, the stew is so delicious that you ask the host for the recipe. And she says, flattered ‘Well, the secret is in the meat, you use three pounds of well marinated golden retriever’.”

Dr. Melanie Joy fully describes Carnism and all its ramifications in her book, "Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows".
