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.
Both of my parents have always raved about the virtues of the meat nearest to the bones. When I saw this book I purchased it for my mother, and she and I have both enjoyed it immensely. The recipes evoke the 'slow food' movement that we have been getting increasingly interested in. A terrific book!1 of 1 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
