This book is packed with expert information on every aspect of buying, preparing and cooking meat. Tim Wilson and Fran Warde have teamed up to create this comprehensive reference work and inspirational collection of recipes. For each type of meat, the book recommends the best breeds, advises which cuts suit which style of cooking and tells you what to ask your butcher in order to buy the best quality. There are more than 100 recipes arranged according to season, from Sticky citrus marinated pork chops in April through Moroccan chicken with preserved lemons in July to Slow-baked herb-crusted leg of mutton in December. Through monthly farm diaries, the book also reveals what life is really like on a thriving British farm. Packed with specially commissioned photographs taken on the farm as well as in the kitchen by renowned photographer Kristin Perers, this is a uniquely beautiful and useful book.
I love this book! Bought it about a year ago and can't stop talking about it, everyone who eats meat should have a copy. Straightforward delicious recipes with and all the info on cuts etc. I found very interesting.
The closest I've ever got to a farm was the meat isle in Tesco, so when I was given this book for Christmas I was fascinated to learn about the animals, the farms, the farmers, and of course, what makes meat so tasty. The calendar approach works very well.
