The anthropologist Marvin Harris has a theory that the human race can be divided into porcophobes and porcophiles.
There can't be much doubt about which side of the fence Daniela and Bernd of Meyer, Miller, Smith are coming down on. To witness: The carnivore couple will take part in Porkcamp, a barcamp-style event centered around slaughtering, preparing and eating pigs.
From January 22nd to 24th seven groups of seven porkcampers each plus a butcher to a pig will slaughter the pigs, cut up the meat, prepare (and feast on!) a butcher's meal with fresh black pudding, pork pies and liver sausages. There will be hands-on experiences about warm meat processing, brining, smoking and the production of meat preserves, there will be hams to salt and dry, bags of meat to freeze, lard to clarify, and, best of all, German sausages to make.
It will be the most wonderful weekend. (Maybe not so for the pigs.)
