Meat

A Kitchen Education

Overview

From the publisher

Award-winning author James Peterson is renowned for his instructive, encyclopedic cookbooks, each one a master course in the fundamentals of cooking. Like well-honed knives, his books are indispensable tools for any kitchen enthusiast, from the novice home cook to the aspiring chef to the seasoned professional.

Meat: A Kitchen Education is Peterson’s guide for carnivores, with more than 175 recipes and 550 photographs that offer a full range of meat and poultry cuts and preparation techniques, presented with Peterson’s unassuming yet authoritative style.

Instruction begins with an informative summary of meat cooking methods: sautéing, broiling, roasting, braising, poaching, frying, stir-frying, grilling, smoking, and barbecuing. Then, chapter by chapter, Peterson demonstrates classic preparations for every type of meat available from the butcher: chicken, turkey, duck, quail, pheasant, squab, goose, guinea hen, rabbit, hare, venison, pork, beef, veal, lamb, and goat. Along the way, he shares his secrets for perfect pan sauces, gravies, and jus.

Peterson completes the book with a selection of homemade sausages, pâtés, terrines, and broths that are the bases of so many dishes. His trademark step-by-step photographs provide incomparable visual guidance for working with the complex structure and musculature of meats. They illustrate all the basic prep techniques, from trussing a whole chicken to breaking down a whole lamb.

No matter the level of your culinary skills or your degree of kitchen confidence, the recipes and guidance in Meat will help you create scores of satisfying meals to delight your family and friends. This comprehensive volume will inspire you to fire up the stove, oven, or grill, and master the art of cooking meat.
