The Ultimate Companion to Meat: On the Farm, At the Butcher, In the Kitchen 

by Anthony Puharich & Libby Travers


“You hold the right book in your hands. Learning from it will be delicious.” —Anthony Bourdain


In Meat: The Ultimate Companion you will learn virtually all you need to know about meat, including why you should:

- 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.


Recipes for the hardcore carnivore: Over 110 recipes showcase the major cuts and draw on cuisines and chefs from around the world. Lavishly photographed and illustrated, it is sure to become a modern classic and a requirement for every kitchen.


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 Adam Danforth, Temple Grandin, or Pat LaFrieda.
