A comprehensive guide to buying and cooking beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey and game featuring 90 delicious recipes to enjoy—from flash-fried steaks to slow-cooked pulled pork and everything in-between

Here is the ultimate guide to enjoying meat at home, featuring expert advice on buying according to the season, informative charts of all the most popular cuts, what meat to choose for different styles of cooking, and 90 delicious recipes to try. With the increased popularity of high-welfare meat there is a rising demand for information about sourcing meat that is farmed responsibly. Understand the meaning of good animal-husbandry and you will feel better-equipped to ask your butcher the right questions when shopping. Choose a delicious recipe to try from recognisable classics to tasty modern plates, fast week-night fixes to slow-cooked shared feasts. There are also thrifty ways to stretch leftovers as well as suggestions for perfect sides and accompaniments to your meat-based meals, from Dauphinoise Potatoes to Slaw. Whether you want to be a more conscious consumer, make a family budget work harder by cooking inexpensive cuts, or find accurate cooking times for the Sunday roast centerpiece, this book is an invaluable resource for all meat-eaters.
