Product description

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 gets the best taste experience from cooking. His knowledge of animals and butchery gives him an edge that infuses his teaching of the joys of meat cookery. Each cut requires a different method of cooking which he outlines in recipes for popular and less fashionable cuts of meat. This book demystifies meat cookery and helps people explore its wonderful taste opportunities. It includes Pat's favourite tried and tested recipes; dishes that sum up his 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.
