For anyone who ever wanted to know the difference between Porterhouse and Chateaubriand, the Lobel family of master butchers has all the answers in the Meat Bible. Covering every imaginable meatbeef, veal, pork, lamb, poultry, rabbit, and morethe Lobels share their extensive knowledge of the differing tastes, textures, flavors, fat contents, and uses for each cut of meat. More than 150 recipes include such savory dishes as Thai Beef Salad, Braised Pork Tacos with Ancho Chile Sauce, Lamb Loin Chops with Eggplant Caponata and Andalusian-Style Quail with Dates and Almonds. How-to instructions take the mystery out of techniques such as butterflying a chicken. When it comes to meat, no one knows more than the Lobels.
