I actually grew up in Fiji. And my sister and brother-in-law still have a house there. I'm going to have to send along this video!

When I was growing up, we drank unpasteurized milk. The local herd was monitored carefully for tuberculosis and other diseases. The food supply was pretty safe.

Notice that they are mostly prepping lamb and pork. Beef was always really expensive there.

And then like a lot of polynesian/Melanesian cultures, potted/canned meat was really popular. In Fiji they preferred canned corn beef to spam (which seems to be Hawaii's favorite meat).

No. Like Nords, after reading Fast Food Nation, and then later the mad cow disease scares, we absolutely do NOT buy standard ground beef in grocery stores and we avoid it in restaurants unless they spell out some special source.

I make an occasional exception for grass-fed beef, organic beef, or bison.

But looks like I had better watch out for that tainted SD bison!

I like that video. But i sure am glad I don't have to be the guy using the bandsaw. I'd guess that more than once his fingers wound up in the sausage.
