always keep one in your purse!

just a preview of the goodness that the man got me for valentine's day...

this perfect pocket-sized guide is an excellent reference for all things meat. the chapters include beef, veal, pork, lamb, poultry and other game birds, game and other domesticated meats, and sausage and cured meats. each cut is detailed with a general description, recommended amount to buy, how to store, preperation instruction, and flavor pairing ideas. fantastic resource!!
i think it will be a great help in my next project... (a girl's gotta have some secrets!)


  1. aw how... sweet? : )

    I have the field guide to produce.

    ps--have you heard the good food episode about guinea pigs? kinda gross.

  2. i had pet guinea pigs growing up. my grandpa always said "one day, i'm gonna barbeque 'em!"

    fortunately, he never did.

    how's the produce guide? sounds fun!!
