Fantastic book. My favorite of all Jennifer's books. A real gem for any culinary carnivore.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon May 8, 2014
My wife likes cooking (so do I to a lesser degree) and I bought this book for her, although I read it as well. The book is well laid out and both the font and content make it for an easy read. It is however, not for a novice and in reality it is for someone who has already done a lot of cooking and wants to expand their range. In many ways it is like going to a cooking school, except you have to put in a bit more work since there is no one to show you. If you like entertaining guests and they enjoy food, this is an excellent book and it gives you a range of ideas (and recipes) that will impress visitors to your house. If you are expecting recipes that take 10 minutes and are meant to feed three kids at lunch, this is not the book for you. If however, you want to learn and expand your cooking skills this is an excellent book.

AS a paleo eater, I'm in love with fat. Obviously these recipes aren't paleo, but I love the respectful discussion of my favourite ingredient. I'm pouring over this happily and passing it on to my non paleo friends in a gift exchange. A kitchen class.

I have always had trouble encouraging customers and clients (and even family) to try foods that make use of the fat and all parts of the animal. Jennifer McLagan has helped overcome this problem with her book. It gives explanations that are simple, accurate and hard to argue with. Now even some of my most serious anti-fat people are giving it a go.

Thank you Jennifer,

Doug Murray

This book says some things that I believe needed to be said. It really is time to reassess some of the prevailing dietary 'wisdom'. There are some great things in this book I wish to try and I enjoyed reading all the supplementary material. Some more pictures would be nice but that's only a minor quibble.

I bought this book for my sister, who is an amazing cook! But I couldn't resist reading a good portion of it myself. Not only is it well written, what it says about the nemesis that is fat goes a long way toward changing how we view this *natural* substance. But then it's always worthwhile to look on the other side of an issue. And in this book, the author did just that.
