John Torode is widely known as co-presenter and judge on the BBC's "MasterChef" and for his hugely popular and established restaurant, Smiths of Smithfield, at the heart of London's Smithfield meat market. What some may not know is that this Australian chef has a passion for one of the greatest British ingredients - beef. In this meaty book, John not only gives us every which way to cook with beef, but also gives the history and importance of great and rare breeds, butcher's recommended cuts and true head-to-tail eating. With his passion for the subject, the recipes are straight from the heart - down-to-earth, tasty, easy to make and gathered from around the world. They include classics such as pies, roasts, steaks and hamburgers as well as contemporary Italian, French and Thai specialities. "John Torode's Beef" tells it how it is and is sure to become a trusty stalwart in the kitchen. It includes a fold-out poster showing cuts of meat and a gatefold visual of how to cook Beef for 100!
