Embrace Your Inner Carnivore!
on October 22, 2012
Chef Michael Symon is serious about meat...and 100+ recipes on the topic proves it!
I am really enjoying the book and the layout of it. It is broken down by the different meats: Beef, Pork, Lamb & Goat, Poultry, Game, and a section on side dishes to accompany the various meat dishes. I was especially pleased to find the game section, as venison is one of my favorite meats. At the start of each section there is a guide for selecting the meat, and then a guide to proper cooking temperatures (safety first!). It's great that these are included, as they speak to cooks of all backgrounds, especially those that may not be as familiar cooking a particular type of meat.
The recipes are great (I have tried two so far, but read ALL of them), and I have recommended it to at least 3 friends already in the few short days I have had it.
