Many thanks to the staff at The Daily Freeman for the awesome article about The Butcher’s Guide to Well-Raised Meat.  They even included a video of an interview with Jessica Applestone.  Here is an excerpt:

In “The Butcher’s Guide,” not only do the authors argue sharply in favor of grass-fed animals, but they define terms like “free-range” and “organic.”

They also get right to the point about the best cooking techniques (like making the perfect steak); how to make spice rubs and use bones in your cooking.

And they give the inside scoop on buying well-raised meat on a budget and include some recipes like “Bite-Your-Tongue Tacos,” and “Japanese Fried Chicken.”

Thanks to PW for a lovely write up of The Butcher’s Guide To Well-Raised Meat. Pub date — June 7th — is around the corner. Can’t wait.

A little excerpt:

“…[the] book provides clear, useful instruction on dealing with cuts of beef, lamb, pork, and poultry, interesting meditations on sustainable dining, and a dozen or so recipes thrown in for good measure. The literature of butchery is hard to resist, and the Applestones with Zissu (The Conscious Kitchen) manage to wield both a skillful pen and clever cleaver.”
