Seasoned Advice is a question and answer site for professional and amateur chefs. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm looking for good, authoritative references on food safety topics. In particular I'd like to learn more about the different parts of various meats and fish, which parts are safe to eat, and what preparation steps are necessary for each to guarantee safety.

What would be a good place to look for this information?

I'm not sure what to make of this question... if there's actually a subject area for this (butchering? anatomy?) it's definitely not called "food processing". That term either refers to food processor appliances or commercial food processing (i.e. manufacture of packaged food products in massive quantities). I'm going to treat this as a question about food safety in general; feel free to clarify if I'm missing the point. –  Aaronut Oct 30 '11 at 14:21
