This is my friend Shannon's book. After reading Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma, we started buying all our meat from her family, which runs a beautiful farm a few miles away. The book is great. Lots of simple and delicious things to do with meat of all kinds. I can even deal with big, scary, roasty things now like "bottom round." Shannon's website is www.shannonhayes.info. Come visit us and we'll take you to the farm.

I love this book! So helpful. It touches on some of reasons for going grassfed, and gives a detailed discussion of how to cook the meats. And yes, it's a cookbook and there are recipes. I just picked up a pork shoulder roast and will be trying it soon. I have always heard from the growers that grassfed meats need to be cooked differently, and it's really nice to have a guide for just that.

Shannon is the authority on grassfed and game!! It is a shame that our modern commercial meat has to be so overcooked just to be rid of possible of bacterial infestation. If it is grass fed fresh and local it doesn't need to be well-done, in order to be WELL DONE! Thank you Shannon for re-invigorating my palate! Fabulous recipes (even for the conventional market)
