Review Text

Una guía que le ayudará a criar gallinas, patos, ocas y pavos tanto para carne como para huevos. Con sencillas instrucciones para cocinar los huevos a la perfección, cuidar a las aves y sacrificarlas de la manera más humana posible, así como docenas de fantásticas recetas de las que disfrutar. «El orgullo que uno siente al llevar a la mesa sus propios productos para el disfrute de la familia y los amigos es inmenso; con este libro resulta muy fácil intentarlo.» [Dick y James Strawbridge] La mayor parte de la gente empieza a criar gallinas porque no hay nada como un huevo fresco de una gallina feliz y bien alimentada. Además, un ave criada sin prisas y a la que se le haya dado mucha atención estará deliciosa. Antes de decidirse a criar gallinas por sus huevos, o pavos por su carne, tiene que asegurarse de que está preparado para asumir lo que esta decisión comporta. La cría de aves implica a veces suciedad y malos olores, y le hará más consciente de su relación con la comida: cuando vea todos los días andar por el jardín lo que va a comerse, le será difícil seguir engañándose con la idea de que la carne viene envuelta en celofán. Tanto si lo ha cultivado usted mismo como si lo ha criado, cazado o comprado, hecho en casa le enseñará a transformar excelentes productos frescos en deliciosos alimentos artesanos que podrá consumir y disfrutar durante todo el año.show more
