This is the definitive guide to Irish beef, covering every aspect of buying, preparing and cooking it.
Pat Whelan, Ireland's foremost butcher, shares the benefit of his inherited expertise as a fifth-generation farmer and butcher, empowering readers with the knowledge to seek out the very best beef available.
Katy McGuinness shows you how to create delicious dishes using every part of the animal with recipes selected to ensure that this is the only guide to cooking beef the domestic cook will ever need. The classics are all included, as are quick and easy midweek suppers and more complex dishes for leisurely weekend entertaining. There is a whole section devoted to the perfect steak, and the chapter on roasting removes the fear factor from Sunday lunchtime once and for all. With beautiful photography taken on the farm as well as in the kitchen, this unique book is one to celebrate.

"The book is a veritable encyclopaedia of bovine treats, and you don't have to be Desperate Dan the Cowpie Man to enjoy and learn from it as Whelan explains and illustrates the less expensive cuts and steaks which we have been seeing more of in restaurants of late and how best to utilise them."-- Lucinda O'Sullivan * Sunday Independent *
'Pat Whelan and I share similar values - a respect for traditional skill and craft. This book is packed with recipes that use every scrap of meat from the nose to the tail and provide a noble end for the animals he rears and butchers'-- Darina Allen
