When we opened Meatsmith in Fitzroy in 2015 our aim was to serve our community of home cooks with quality heritage meats, skilled butchery and a chef’s point of view.
In our first cookbook, Meatsmith: Home Cooking for Friends and Family, Andrew McConnell and Troy Wheeler, celebrate this ethos in over 80 trusted recipes that are as much about the exchanging of knowledge and ideas as they are about eating and drinking well.
Celebrated Australian restaurateur Andrew McConnell (Gimlet, Cutler & Co) and world class butcher Troy Wheeler unite for Meatsmith: Home Cooking For Friends and Family, featuring more than 80 brilliant recipes to inspire long lunches, impressive dinners and sensational shared celebrations.
More than another meat cookbook, this is an elegant guide to classic cooking that will inspire moments to be remembered. Discover menus for special occasions – from a fiery butcher's picnic to a summer lunch in the garden – plus how to grill the perfect rib eye, prepare a spectacular steak tartare and create one great dessert.
Master signature dishes such as beef wellington or glazed roast duck, delicious charcuterie, barbecue and roasts; and find stellar side pairings among an array of show-stealing salads, vegetable dishes, and sauces.
Andrew and Troy’s belief in quality has seen Meatsmith become one of Australia's best boutique grocers, and it is now the essential cookbook every home cook must have.
