This would be an ideal coffee table book or gift as the quality of the production, photography and general feel is premium. Richardson owner of La Luna Bistro in Melbourne, simply put, explains how to choose, cook and eat all types of meat. This includes recipes featuring each protein along with specialty chapters covering Charcuterie, pies, and offal to name a few. In a nutshell, this book is a celebration of every aspect of meat, from the living animal to the recipe you cook for dinner. It also challenges you to expand your meat repertoire and embrace tougher cuts and dishes. Something we all should be encouraged to do!
