Meat is the centerpiece of celebratory meals and everyday dinners. The quality of the meat-be it beef, lamb, chicken, pork, or even wild game like venison and rabbit-and the way it is prepared has never been so thoroughly important as in today's world. Fifth- generation butcher Anthony Puharich believes that sustainably raised meat can and should remain the pinnacle of the kitchen: a special and wonderful treat, handled with care by the best farmers and butchers and eaten with respect. In The Ultimate Companion to Meat, he reveals how to make enjoying meat a sublime experience, with more than 100 recipes. Chapters include Birds, Sheep, Pigs, Cattle, and Wild. There is information about breeds, their history, and what they eat and how it affects the taste, as well as what happens on the farm, at the butcher, and finally, in the kitchen. There's a chapter on technique, including cooking methods and basic butchery. Hundreds of illustrations, diagrams, and stunning photographs make this truly the ultimate guide for anyone who is serious about meat.
Good ol boy, Cousin Rick Black, is passionate about hunting, fishing, and cooking wild game and fish, and he's spent a lifetime collecting and testing recipes for every kind of fish, fowl, and game, both large and small. Now he shares more than 250 of his favorite recipes for deer, elk, antelope, caribou, moose, bear, buffalo, squirrel, rabbit, beaver, raccoon, trout, bass, salmon, and panfish. In addition to the recipes, Rick includes chapters on rubs and marinades, cooking with beer, and how to cook for wild game banquets. Great tasting wild game starts with savvy field dressing, and Rick shares plenty of tips and helpful info on how to best and safely prepare game and fish before you get to the kitchen. And Rick knows that cooking game should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience so, in typical Cousin Rick style, he includes a dollop of down-home humor too.
Just when you thought you couldn't handle one more quinoa salad or cold-pressed juice, here comes a cookbook devoted to the best meal ever - a char-crusted, luscious steak, followed by the kind of homemade cake that wears its butter, eggs, sugar, and love proudly. Steak and Cake is a paean to pleasure from Elizabeth Karmel, who's both America's leading female pitmaster and a gifted baker who grew up in the South's cake belt. Now she's put her two passions together in a unique cookbook of more than 100 recipes. Why not Cowboy Steak with Whiskey Butter followed by a Whiskey Buttermilk Bundt Cake? Or a Porterhouse for Two with Wild Mushroom Saute, followed by My Mother's Freshly Grated Coconut Cake? Or have fun by doing your own mixing and matching of steaks with cakes. Along the way you'll gain a butcher's knowledge of steak - foolproof techniques for cooking steak on the grill, in the oven, in a cast-iron pan. There are steaks whole, cut up in kebobs and tacos, and ground in burgers. Recipes for the sauces and great steakhouse sides are included, plus a lifetime's worth of tips that take the intimidation out of baking from scratch. Julia Child once said, The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook. This book would have made her very proud.
