Leanne Kitchen’s book is part of a series (there’s also The Baker, The Greengrocer, The Dairy) that aims to get people thinking more about their ingredients. The Butcher thus encourages cooks to consider more carefully what meat they choose to cook with tips on purchasing, storing, cutting and cooking to get the most flavour out. Complete with plenty recipes, it makes a good coffee table number, but also one you’ll get good use from in the kitchen. R275 at Chefs Warehouse.
