Lamb by Brian YarvinSo long as humans have been raising animals, they have been eating lamb. In this engaging history, Brian Yarvin tells the story of how we've raised, cooked, and eaten lamb over the centuries and the place it's established in a wide range of cuisines and cultures worldwide. Starting with the earliest days of lamb and sheep farming in the ancient Middle East, Yarvin traces the spread of lamb to cooks in ancient Rome and Greece. He details the earliest recorded meals involving lamb in the Zagros Mountains of Iraq and Iran, explores its role in Renaissance banquets in Italy, and follows its path to China, India, and even Navajo tribes in America. Taking his story up to the present, Yarvin considers the growing locavore movement, one that has found in lamb a manageable, sustainable source of healthy--and tasty--protein. Richly illustrated and peppered with recipes, Lamb will be the perfect accompaniment to your next grilled chop or braised shank.

The Meat Hook Meat Book by Tom Mylan; Michael Harlan Turkell (Photographer)Buying large, unbutchered pieces of meat from a local farm or butcher shop means knowing where and how your food was raised, and getting meat that is more reasonably priced. It means getting what you want, not just what a grocery store puts out for sale--and tailoring your cuts to what you want to cook, not the other way around. For the average cook ready to take on the challenge, The Meat Hook Meat Book is the perfect guide: equal parts cookbook and butchering handbook, it will open readers up to a whole new world--start by cutting up a chicken, and soon you'll be breaking down an entire pig, creating your own custom burger blends, and throwing a legendary barbecue (hint: it will include The Man Steak--the be-all and end-all of grilling one-upmanship--and a cooler full of ice-cold cheap beer). This first cookbook from meat maven Tom Mylan, co-owner of The Meat Hook, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is filled with more than 60 recipes and hundreds of photographs and clever illustrations to make the average cook a butchering enthusiast. With stories that capture the Meat Hook experience, even those who haven't shopped there will become fans.

Meat Illustrated: A Foolproof Guide to Understanding and Cooking with Cuts of All Kinds by America's Test Kitchen (Editor)Increase your meat counter confidence with this must-have companion for cooking beef, pork, lamb, and veal with more than 300 kitchen-tested recipes. 2021 IACP Award Winner in the General Category Increase your meat counter confidence with this must-have companion for cooking beef, pork, lamb, and veal with more than 300 kitchen-tested recipes. Part cookbook, part handbook organized by animal and its primal cuts, Meat Illustrated is the go-to source on meat, providing essential information and techniques to empower you to explore options at the supermarket or butcher shop (affordable cuts like beef shanks instead of short ribs, lesser-known cuts like country-style ribs, leg of lamb instead of beef tenderloin for your holiday centerpiece), and recipes that make those cuts (72 in total) shine. Meat is a treat; we teach you the best methods for center-of-the-plate meats like satisfying Butter-Basted Rib Steaks (spooning on hot butter cooks the steaks from both sides so they come to temperature as they acquire a deep crust), meltingly tender Chinese Barbecued Roast Pork Shoulder (cook for 6 hours so the collagen melts to lubricate the meat), and the quintessential Crumb-Crusted Rack of Lamb. Also bring meat beyond centerpiece status with complete meals- Shake up surf and turf with Fried Brown Rice with Pork and Shrimp. Braise lamb shoulder chops in a Libyan-style chickpea and orzo soup called Sharba. Illustrated primal cut info at the start of each section covers shopping, storage, and prep pointers and techniques with clearly written essays, step-by-step photos, break-out tutorials, and hundreds of hand-drawn illustrations that take the mystery out of meat prep (tie roasts without wilderness training; sharply cut crosshatches in the fat), so you'll execute dishes as reliably as the steakhouse. Learn tricks like soaking ground meat in baking soda before cooking to tenderize, or pre-roasting rather than searing fatty cuts before braising to avoid stovetop splatters. Even have fun with DIY curing projects.

The Butcher's Guide To Well-Raised Meat by Joshua Applestone; Jessica Applestone; Alexandra ZissuThere is a food revolution sweeping the nation, changing the way Americans think and eat, and meat is at the heart of it. The butcher has reemerged in American culture as an essential guide in avoiding the evils of industrial meat-which not only tastes bad, but is also bad for one's health and for the environment. Joshua and Jessica Applestone, a former vegan and vegetarian, are trailblazers in this arena. They run Fleisher's, an old-school butcher shop with a modern-day mission-sourcing and selling only grass-fed and organic meat. The Applestones' return to the nearly lost tradition of the buying and nose-to-tail carving of whole animals-all humanely raised close to their shop in New York's Hudson Valley-has helped to make them rising stars in the food world.The Butcher's Guide to Well-Raised Meat is a compendium of their firsthand knowledge. This unique book-a guide, memoir, manifesto, and reference in one-shares everything one needs to know about well-raised meat, including why pastured meats are so much better than conventional ones and how to perfectly butcher and cook them at home. Readers will learn which cut of steak to look for as an alternative to the popular hanger (of which each steer has only one), how to host a driveway pig roast, and even how to break down an entire lamb (or just butterfly the shoulder)-all with accompanying step-by-step photographs. Differences among breeds and ideal cooking methods for various cuts and offal are covered, and the Applestones' decoding of misleading industry terminology and practices will help consumers make smarter, healthier purchases that can also help change what's wrong with meat in America today.Complete with color and black-and-white photographs, illustrations, and more than a dozen recipes, The Butcher's Guide to Well-Raised Meat is the definitive guide to eating great meat-responsibly.
