Even if you skip the meat chapters, there’s enough in this book to keep you cooking — and entertained.” - Dallas Morning News "Boasting fewer calories and less fat than chicken, beef, lamb, or pork, there is certainly a health case to be made for goat meat, say Scarbrough and Weinstein, but it is the environmental impact that may be the most compelling from a societal point of view." -Treehugger.com

Download and read online The Ethical Meat Handbook in PDF and EPUB Nutrition, environmental impact, ethics, sustainability—it seems like there's no end to the factors we must consider when we think about our food. At the center of the dietary storm is animal-based agriculture. Was your beef factory-farmed or pasture-raised? Did your chicken free range, or was it raised in a battery cage? Have you, in short, met your meat? Most efforts to unravel the complexities of the production and consumption of animal protein tend to pit meat eaters and vegetarians against each other. The Ethical Meat Handbook seeks a middle ground, arguing that by assuming full responsibility for the food on our fork, and more importantly, the route by which it gets there, animals can be an optimal source of food, fiber, and environmental management. This hands-on, practical guide covers: Integrating animals into your garden or homestead Basic butchery: whole animal, primals, subprimals, and end-cuts, including safety and knife skills Charcuterie: history, general science and math principles, tooling up Culinary highlights: getting creative, preparing sauces, ferments, difficult cuts, and extras Eating diversely may be the most revolutionary and proactive action we can take to ensure the sustainability of our food system. The Ethical Meat Handbook challenges us to take a hard look at our individual dietary choices, increase our self-reliance and at the same time enjoy delicious food that benefits our health and our planet. Meredith Leigh is a food and farming specialist who has worked as a butcher, chef, teacher, and homesteader, all in search of realistic solutions for sustainable food.

This beautiful and inventive cookbook introduces the idea of seasonal cheese, starting with a brief introduction to which cheeses are at their prime at which time of year, followed by dozens of exceptional recipes each using an easy-to-find seasonal cheese.
