‘The industrialization--and brutalization--of animals in America is a relatively new phenomenon: no other country raises and slaughters its food animals quite as intensively or as brutally as we do. No other people in history has lived at quite so great a remove from the animals they eat.  Were the walls of our meat industry to become transparent we would not long continue to raise, kill and eat animals the way we do. Tail-docking and sow crates and beak-clipping would disappear overnight - for who could stand the sight? Yes, meat would get more expensive. We'd probably eat less of it too, but maybe when we did eat animals, we'd eat them with the consciousness, ceremony and respect they deserve.’

      ‘Feast’ was run by Richard Knight and James and Meagan Silk, who brought a traditional and relaxed European approach to dining to Downtown Houston.  We offered simple, honest, rustic cuisine in a relaxed, homey environment.  Our emphasis was on quality, local, seasonal ingredients prepared with passion and imagination.

            Our desire was to summon the spirit of a family meal shared around the kitchen table of an old-fashioned European family farm...
