WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE SELECTING, BUYING AND COOKING MEAT
• Eat better quality meat, but eat less of it
• Eat the whole animal
• And, eat more wild animals
A meat eater’s best friend: Meat: The Ultimate Companion is not just a meat cookbook. It is designed to walk you through the topic from the eyes of the farmer, the butcher, and the best cooks; helping you with the questions you might want to ask before you buy your meat.
The butchering art: Carefully curated by Anthony Puharich, legendary butcher and supplier to Australia’s leading restaurants, together with accomplished food writer Libby Travers, this comprehensive and ambitious book covers:
• The history of every major animal we raise for meat
• International breed maps
• Cut diagrams and descriptions
• And, illustrated butchery techniques and expert tips on selecting, storing and cooking all kinds of meat
Meat: The Ultimate Companion is an excellent choice for fans of Stephanie Alexander, Michael Pollan, or Victor Churchill.
