The Hunter's Haunch: What You Dona't Know about Deer and Venison That Will Change the Way You Cook
The Hunter's Haunch
What You Dona't Know about Deer and Venison That Will Change the Way You Cook
Hardcover      ISBN: 1629146617
A new way to look at hunting and deer meat that anyone who owns a venison cookbook must read

Is a doe better eating than a buck? Is hanging really necessary? Why can't venison be aged? Will soaking in milk make that gamy taste go away? The Hunter's Haunch provides straightforward and fascinating answers for these and other questions that every hunter-cook has faced, delving into myths, folklore, hunting history, and modern culinary science in order to explain why certain techniques still work and others don't.

Many wild game cookbooks offer recipes for venison chili, venison burgers, venison sausage, and other solutions that make tough and gamy meat edible. By contrast, The Hunter's Haunch aims to rethink the entire process so that rescuing tough meat never becomes necessary in the first place. Focusing on the relationship of the hunt to the rhythms of nature, The Hunter's Haunch examines the deer as a living creature in the wild, showing how the skills of the hunter affect its treatment in the kitchen, and ultimately how the venison tastes when served at the table.

Covering the history of deer hunting, practical lessons in game anatomy, and indispensable tips for dressing and prep, The Hunter's Haunch is an essential read for anyone who hopes to transform their quarry into the best possible venison.

Craft Burgers and Crazy Shakes from Black Tap
Craft Burgers and Crazy Shakes from Black Tap
Hardcover      ISBN: 0735215456
The debut cookbook from NYC's viral sensation Black Tap delivers unique recipes for innovative burgers and sensational, over-the-top milkshakes.

Black Tap is no ordinary burgers-and-fries restaurant--after opening in NYC's Soho in March 2015, their bold, gourmet-flavored burgers and sky-high milkshakes adorned with donuts, sparklers, and oversized cookies have created amassive cult following on social media and the streets of New York, with people waiting in line for hours just to score a seat at the restaurant's lunch counter. Though Black Tap is known for its assertive flavors and outrageous shakes, at the heart of the brand is the notion of an old-school luncheonette burger deluxe: an expertly prepared burger with all the trimmings, a side of fries, and a milkshake to cap off the meal. In his debut cookbook, Black Tap chef-owner Joe Isidori delivers 40 recipes for the restaurant's signature burgers, tasty condiments and toppings, and gravity-defying milkshakes. With Craft Burgers and Crazy Shakes, readers will be able to prepare and enjoy all of Black Tap's classic and innovative creations, from their Old Fashioned Burger to the Sour Power Milkshake, in the comfort of their own kitchens, no standing in line required.
Carne: Meat Recipes from the Kitchen of the American Academy in Rome
Carne
Meat Recipes from the Kitchen of the American Academy in Rome
Hardcover      ISBN: 1936941120
Carne is the fifth in the series of cookbooks documenting the renowned farm-to-table meals served by the Rome Sustainable Food Project, founded by Alice Waters, at the American Academy in Rome. Following volumes on biscotti, vegetables, pastas, and soups, this cookbook focuses on Executive Chef Christopher Behr's favorite subject, meat: beef, lamb, pork, rabbit, and poultry.

Chef Behr also offers more than a dozen recipes for side dishes, or contorni, that he serves alongside meat entr es: salads (including Radicchio Salad with Green Apple Balsamic Vinaigrette with Walnuts and Grilled Cucumber Salad with Yogurt), bean dishes, Sweet and Sour Squash, Pickled Green Tomatoes with Garlic, Hot Pepper and Mint (a dish that sold out within hours when he offered it at BKLYN Larder), and his legendary roasted potatoes that are crisp and golden on the outside with the
creamy consistency of mashed potatoes on the inside.

The Italian food of the Jersey shore is near and dear to Chef Behr's heart, and when he's homesick he cooks those iconic dishes, from meat loaf to short ribs, although his versions reflect his experiences in California, New York, and Rome--they're lighter than the classic version but nonetheless deliver all their robust satisfaction.

Or, brandy your own prunes at home to stuff a decadent, caul fat-lined Duck Terrine.

Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking, and Curing
Charcuterie
The Craft of Salting, Smoking, and Curing
Hardcover      ISBN: 0393240053

Charcuterie exploded onto the scene in 2005 and encouraged an army of home cooks and professional chefs to start curing their own foods. This love song to animal fat and salt has blossomed into a bona fide culinary movement, throughout America and beyond, of curing meats and making sausage, pâtés, and confits. Charcuterie: Revised and Updated will remain the ultimate and authoritative guide to that movement, spreading the revival of this ancient culinary craft.

Early in his career, food writer Michael Ruhlman had his first taste of duck confit. The experience "became a fascination that transformed into a quest" to understand the larger world of food preservation, called charcuterie, once a critical factor in human survival. He wondered why its methods and preparations, which used to keep communities alive and allowed for long-distance exploration, had been almost forgotten. Along the way he met Brian Polcyn, who had been surrounded with traditional and modern charcuterie since childhood. "My Polish grandma made kielbasa every Christmas and Easter," he told Ruhlman. At the time, Polcyn was teaching butchery at Schoolcraft College outside Detroit.

Ruhlman and Polcyn teamed up to share their passion for cured meats with a wider audience. The rest is culinary history. Charcuterie: Revised and Updated is organized into chapters on key practices: salt-cured meats like pancetta, dry-cured meats like salami and chorizo, forcemeats including pâtés and terrines, and smoked meats and fish. Readers will find all the classic recipes: duck confit, sausages, prosciutto, bacon, pâté de campagne, and knackwurst, among others. Ruhlman and Polcyn also expand on traditional mainstays, offering recipes for hot- and cold-smoked salmon; shrimp, lobster, and leek sausage; and grilled vegetable terrine. All these techniques make for a stunning addition to a contemporary menu.

Thoroughly instructive and fully illustrated, this updated edition includes seventy-five detailed line drawings that guide the reader through all the techniques. With new recipes and revised sections to reflect the best equipment available today, Charcuterie: Revised and Updated remains the undisputed authority on charcuterie.
