Now in paper. The Niman Ranch Cookbook traces the transformation of a modest family endeavor into a respected nationwide model of sustainable farming--one that is supported by more than 500 independent family farmers raising livestock according to Niman Ranch's strict animal husbandry protocols. Focusing on beef, pork, and lamb (with illustrated meat charts describing all majors cuts), the book introduces us to the Niman ranchers, their well-cared-for animals, and a fast-disappearing--but ultimately essential--way of living, eating, and doing business.
"Bill Niman's obsession for creating the best product possible has made his Niman Ranch meats a cut above the rest."--Bon Appétit
"The Niman Ranch Cookbook" shows what responsible, humane, nonagribusiness ranching can be . . . It's an instructive, well-told, and even inspiring story--and grateful chefs have contributed many good recipes."--New York Times
