I hope my vegan friends don't read this!

We don't eat a lot of meat, not because we don't like it, partly because I grew up eating a lot of it as a kid and didn't particularly care for it. Mom would toss a roast in the crockpot with carrots, potatoes and a can of cream of mushroom soup, eight hours later, it was done.

I remember seeing pictures of roasts in magazines, their brown sides dripping with juices, surrounded by crispy potatoes and turnips and they looked so much tastier than the slightly

This book is full of wonderful ideas and recipes on how to jazz up your roast dinner.

We then go to the start of the week. Monday is for roast beef. A short paragraph on what to look for when buying it and than how to cook it to your liking. Well illustrated. Several recipes and sauces to go with it is well such as Bearnaise sauce and Shallot butter. Photos of t

My daughter recommended this and it is an amazing book. I think I learned quite a few new ways to do a roast. My only hesitation in recommending this book is that I don't eat all the types of meat they cover. I'll bet, though, you can apply the techniques to similar kinds of meat.
