together Fergus Henderson's two previous tomes ('Nose To Tail Eating :
A Kind Of British Cooking - 2004 and 'Beyond Nose To Tail : A Kind Of

Mr Henderson's celebrated London restaurant St John has been a high
temple of gastronomy to well-heeled carnivores since it opened in 1994.
He works magic with the kind of cuts which would have been thrown away
or sold for next to nothing by butchers twenty years ago (except for

A great book.
And I found it. Good simple recipes with ingredients my grandparents used, not fancy exotic stuff nobody knows how to get.
Offal recipes blow you away.

A good question indeed, why buy this book;
1) You have no intention of trying the recipes.
2) You're the pretentious type that seeks to impress. Read more
The trotter gear is excellent and hasn't failed to please. So refreshing to find a book that gives delicious recipes for the cheaper and less fashionable cutsPublished on 8 July 2013 by jackie brearley
