And there is another story, one you may not be familiar with, an updated version. Very similar to the one above. A man buys a vacuum-packed cow's heart from a local farmer. He makes his girlfriend go to pick it up on a Saturday morning. She brings it home to him and he opens up the package and dices up some of the non-beating heart. He mixes it with shallots, chervil, parsley and olive oil. He plates it with some garlic confit, ciabatta toast and balsamic reduction. He serves it to his girlfriend who reluctantly eats. The man looks on nervously. This is the moment that his girlfriend begins to question their relationship.
