I also own the "All about braising", by the same author. It is equally good. Quality of meat does not lead to tender and juicy meat, if we do not prepare it properly. I have tried to roast beef for almost 40 years and never completely succeeded in having a tender and juicy meat. Now I know why! These two books provided me methods and steps for successfully roasting and braising meats.
Too bad these two books were not around when I got married, some 40 years ago! They have become my bible for roasting and braising. (My wish now is that the author publishes one on casseroles, just casseroles.)
