“Peter Sanagan is my local butcher. He knows a lot about meat, from the challenges facing our farmers, to the art of butchery, to the ways we can work with different cuts in the kitchen and at the grill. He’s a wonderfully clear and graceful writer, and a natural teacher. Now his deep understanding of meat is available to all. I’m already thinking of this book as Sanagan’s Meat Bible.”
