What’s a roast with­out the stuff­ing?

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY CHAR­LOTTE OLIVER

TAXI­DER­MIST ELLE Kaye is prob­a­bly un­usual in her pro­fes­sion — she claims she eats the meat of all the an­i­mals she stuffs.

“It to­tally con­tra­dicts the no­tion of taxi­dermy to waste the an­i­mal,” she says. “It is about re-cre­at­ing it and giv­ing it a new lease of life. Re-us­ing it as food con­tra­dicts the idea that eat­ing meat is waste­ful.”

Need­less to say, the art grad­u­ate from Bushey does not keep kosher.

Since leav­ing Lough­bor­ough Univer­sity, she has be­come lead tu­tor at the Lon­don Taxi­dermy Academy in Bor­ough Mar­ket and runs her own com­pany.

She’s also unique in another way. At 22, she’s Bri­tain’s youngest “stuffer”.
