"A great book for people who want to know where their meat comes from."
- Temple Grandin, author of "Animals Make Us Human"
"Anyone who laments the disappearance of the craft of butchery as a casualty of the industrial meat system will take heart in the very hopeful message of this book--that a new generation of butchers are restoring time-honored traditions in all corners of the country".
- Paul Bertolli, chef, author of "Cooking by Hand"
"Just because Marissa's book is important doesn't make it any less fun than taking a break at the family BBQ, tying up your cousin to the nearest ant hill, and basting him with honey. This tome is a collection of superb stories about the men and women who make the meat world go round, with recipes and buckets of undiluted butcher worship thrown in for good measure."
- Andrew Zimmern, host of "Bizarre Foods"
""Primal Cuts" is a celebration of the art of the butcher...While the book covers many common cuts and options, it also explores -- and gives recipes for -- some lesser-known cuts and under-used animals.

The recipes are both informative, and fun."

""Primal Cuts" is a book that celebrates butchers...full of straightforward, meat-focused dishes, each accompanied by a story about a member of the new, unexpected generation of American butchers -- young, focused on quality and unwilling to compromise."
- "Richmond "Magazine
"Marissa's ode to pork, lamb, beef, goat, duck and chicken is a can't-look-away book filled with well-worn recipes, illustrations and unfliching images of raw meat and white-coated butchers. A primal look at the food that fuels us, and a story of where that food comes from in all its carnivorous glory."
"[Marissa Guggiana] has delivered the definitive guide to the country's carvers... At 287 pages and roughly as weighty as a rack of lamb, housed in a butcher-paper jacket, the book is full of butcher profiles, recipes, tips, philosophies and information along with hundre
