Top food stylist and writer Jennifer McLagan has a bone to pick: too often, people opt for boneless chicken breasts, fish fillets, and cutlets, when good cooks know that anything cooked on the bone has more flavor--from fried chicken or spareribs to a rib roast or a whole salmon. In her first book, she offers a collection of recipes for cooking beef, veal, pork, lamb, poultry, fish and game on their bones.
Each chapter is divided into five sections: stocks, soups, ribs, legs, and extremities (except for whole fish--they don't have any.) and she's included history and tradition (the Thanksgiving turkey wishbone) about bones.
