Whole Beast Butchery, Hardback


DIY fever + quality meat mania = old-school butchery revival!

Artisan cooks who are familiar with their farmers market are now buying small farm raised meat in butcher-sized portions.

Dubbed a rock star butcher by the New York Times, San Francisco chef and self-taught meat expert Ryan Farr demystifies the butchery process with 500 step-by-step photographs, master recipes for key cuts, and a primer on tools, techniques, and meat handling.

This visual manual is the first to teach by showing exactly what butchers know, whether cooks want to learn how to turn a primal into familiar and special cuts or to simply identify everything in the case at the market.
