Salt, sausage, smoke -- the artistry of curing your own meats
Over the past 15 years, Meredith Leigh has worked as a farmer, butcher, chef, teacher, non-profit executive director, and writer, all in pursuit of sustainable food. She has developed a farmer co-op, founded and catalyzed non-profit ventures, grown vegetables, flowers, and meats, owned and managed a retail butcher shop and restaurant, and more. She is the author of The Ethical Meat Handbook: A Complete Guide to Home Butchery, Charcuterie, and Cooking for the Conscious Omnivore.
Some cookbooks live on the coffee table. Others live in the kitchen, their stained pages a pragmatic guide to what's for dinner. Farmer, chef, teacher, mother, activist, and writer Meredith Leigh has penned a profound how-to that's equally at home in the larder or on the nightstand beside collections of verse by Tracy K. Smith and William Matthews. - Jason Tesauro, Esquire.com
