Good meat is one of life's sublime pleasures. Pat Whelan has a passion for everything about it, so it's no surprise Rick Stein lists him as one of his Food Heroes. From the quickest pan-fried steak to a slow-cooked dish, Pat understands how to get the best taste experience from cooking. His knowledge of animals and butchery gives him an edge and Pat is enthusiastic about teaching everyone the joys of meat cookery. Each cut requires a certain method of cooking, and he outlines methods and recipes for popular and less fashionable cuts of meat. This book is intended to demystify meat cookery and help people explore its wonderful taste opportunities. It includes Pat's favourite tried and tested recipes; dishes that sum up his warm, family-oriented and eclectic outlook on life. Evocative recipe shots and outstanding recipes for today's kitchen capture the quality of the produce of James Whelan Butchers.
