On the heels of that record-setting $250,000 dog wedding, Brooklyn Kitchen has announced a series of dog food cooking classes. It's about time we hipped all these lame, behind-the-times dogs to the foodie trend!
“Our dogs love kale and the fava beans we just harvested,” said Rick Woodford, who goes by the self-given nickname "Dog Food Dude." “I’d rather give a dog a carrot than a milk bone any day."
Naturally, Woodford also has a cookbook of treats for the refined, organically inclined dog (Feed Your Best Friend Better) such as turkey "muttloaf." "Cooking for a dog is much like cooking for a diabetic child or a partner with heart disease," said Woodford, adding, "How can it be pampering if you're just feeding them real food? It should not be a crime to give a dog a carrot."
"Dogs are people too," chimed in Brooklyn Kitchen co-owner Taylor Erkkinen.
Normally I'd be inclined to mock or at least point to the basic factual inaccuracy of such a statement, but as an avid supporter of dogs in clothes and/or costumes, it is not my place here to judge.
