She Ate It Braised, With Fava Beans and a Nice Chianti

A Salon magazine scribe who obviously has way too much time on her hands consumes placenta and writes about it.

Now there's something you won't find on the menu at any of the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (although one time one of them made fried pig's ear sandwiches, which kind of made me want to hurl).

I remember the place that specialized in Chicken Gizzards.

Actually, they're considered quite a delicacy in Ashkenazi cuisine; they're called "pipiks," which literally means "stomachs" in Yiddish. I've never been partial to them myself, but then I've always thought offal was, well, awful.
