"Leiths Meat Bible" is the ultimate meat cookbook. Packed with recipes from all over the world, it has something for every occasion, from a simple after-work supper to an elegant dinner. As with every book from the Leiths series, all recipes are foolproof with an emphasis on proper technique. The first part of the book guides you through the basic techniques for choosing, preparing, cooking and carving meat, including an illustrated guide to the different cuts of meat (and how to tell if a piece of meat is fresh and good-quality), advice on how to handle and store raw meat, and easy-to-follow instructions on every kind of cooking method you will need. Following this are chapters on each type of meat, including delicious recipes ranging from the classics, such as Beef stew, Shepherd's pie, Slow-roast pork belly and Toad-in-the hole, to more adventurous dishes, such as Sticky chicken goujons with caramelised lemons, Duck breasts with blackberry and apple sauce and Thai basil pork. There are also tempting and inventive ideas for cooking with cheaper cuts of meat.
This huge book includes full colour photographs, illustrated techniques tips, wine recommendations for every recipe, troubleshooting guides, a glossary of cooking terms, and much more. Utterly comprehensive, reliable and easy to use, this is an essential book for every kitchen.
