Not sure where you got this, but even if it's true, you're implying it used to be higher class to eat cooked meat. Eating meat in general was the high-class part. Cooking meat was relatively cheap and easy, so even lower class people cooked meat before they ate it.
I’ve always found it pretentious. I’ve known a lot of people who eat raw meat and fish(I know fish is meat). But, cmon. Wtf. I seriously want to slap them in the face with it.
I love sashimi and raw oysters, but I'm far from being high class.
High class? Source?
it's also salmonella
Steak Tartare? Always been a upper class specialty
Social class is stupid and preparing your food according to your class is ridiculous.
Depends on the meat, I wouldn't try the raw approach with pork.
Cavemen new no other way, for a long time....go figure.
Eating raw meat is about as "High Class" ....as calling a colored rectangle "art".
I don't eat raw meat, fish, etc. And my steaks have to be well done, no pink at all. That's gross.
