I had to look up Trader Joe's as I had never heard of it, and then having found a recipe for pork belly had to look that up as well. With me one question usually turns into ten more I have found.

"Pork belly is a boneless cut of fatty meat[1] from the belly of a pig. Pork belly is popular in Asian cuisine, including the Rafute of Okinawan cuisine, and forms a part of many traditional European dishes such as the Alsatian Choucroute garnie, the Swiss Berner Platte (de), and the German Schlachtplatte. In the United States, bacon is most often made from pork bellies. In Colombian cuisine pork belly strips are fried and served as part of bandeja paisa (chicharon). A 100-gram serving of pork belly typically has about 520 calories. The calorie breakdown is: 92% fat (53 g), 0% (0 g) carbohydrates, and 8% (9 g) protein.[2]"

So, what store would I like? A bookstore with history books about every country from the dawn of time to today.
