"John Torode has just completed a pleasantly simple no-frills guide to beef that is just as accessible to Americans as it is to our British cousins. Informative without the snobbery, it is a real book with a purpose--explaining more about the great Bovine beast and making it easy for the layman to appreciate. It's amazing that it has taken so long for a comprehensive book to be published. Bravo John!" -- John Besh, Chef of Restaurant August, named Best Chef of the Southeast by the James Beard Foundation in 2006
John Torode has taken a grand domestic beast (beef) and broken down the key elements to choosing, cutting and cooking it in the best possible ways. In Beef, John answers all your questions and then gently guides you through the techniques to render your beef dishes perfectly cooked. Using time-tested recipes from around the world, John easily turns a big subject into a fantastic collection of cookable dishes for your home.
"Few chefs know and love their beef like John Torode. Now he's written a book that cuts through the bull and gives home cooks the confidence to find the best beef and do it full justice in the kitchen. A rare book and very well done!"
