MY BOOK BEGINNING
On a clear September afternoon, I mingled with a crowd dressed in skirts and khakis in an open pasture beneath snow-rimmed mountains.
-- Pure Beef: An Essential Guide to Artisan Meat with Recipes for Every Cut by Lynne Curry, from the Introduction: How a Former Vegetarian Came to Write a Beef Cookbook and Why it Had to be Written.
Pure Beef is my new favorite cookbook. I have a freezer full of grassfed beef and need some pointers for how to cook it right. Curry explains everything from the cuts, to how to thaw it, to how to cook it and what to cook with it.
Lynne Curry also has a terrific blog, Stories that Feed You, that is chock-o-block full of all kinds of interesting recipes and information about many sorts of food.
