Dec 28, Cathy rated it it was amazing. Also recommended are his other books. After reading this, cookbooks were never the same for me again – a selection of recipes alone is simply not enough.

We also offer a number of courses including: Equally balanced between philosophically sound and mouthwatering food porn. This works as a portable lunchbox, picnic dish, or as part of a cold-cuts lunch or buffet spread. I’d grown up on a farm and had moved back to the countryside about six months prior to this book coming out. Likewise, F-W embraces hunting and offers guidance feanrley-whittingstall game birds and animals as well. The recipe section is not comprehensive but most of the classics are here and well presented, from the incredibly cheap but labour-intensive breast of lamb Sainte Menehould to the incredibly expensive and labour-intensive roast rib of beef with Yorkshire pudding.

We are experiencing technical difficulties.

Start with “mmmm” and ends with “eat”. Hugh F-W makes an interesting case for meat eating, pondering the moral dilemmas of eating animals, a must read for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Aug 08, Anne rated it it was amazing.

Moreover, the dependency of domesticated meat species on us would hugb end just because we stopped killing them. Fearnley-whittungstall second section talks about where meat comes from and how to find and identify good meat.

What he preaches instead is responsibility.
