A holistic food manifesto...

The The Ethical Meat Handbook describes how we might endeavor to get good meat on our plates, and empower ourselves to own more of the process. Part philosophy, part technical instruction, and part memoir, this book gives eating more substance and soul. Included are discussions of economy, environment, agriculture, and social synergy, as well as complete instruction on whole animal butchery of beef, pork, lamb, and poultry. All this, plus a complete chapter on charcuterie, and over 100 delicious recipes make this a must-have for everyone's culinary collection.
