Summary

“Leigh will teach you how to raise animals, butcher them, and cook and cure their meat. Even better, she explains what it means and why it matters.” —Mark Essig, author of Lesser Beasts 
 
Nutrition, environmental impact, ethics, sustainability—it seems like there’s no end to the food factors we must consider. At the center of the dietary storm is animal-based agriculture. Was your beef factory farmed or pasture-raised? Did your chicken free range, or was it raised in a battery cage? Have you, in short, met your meat? 
 
Most efforts to unravel the complexities of the production and consumption of animals tend to pit meat eaters and vegetarians against each other. 
 
In this second edition of The Ethical Meat Handbook, Meredith Leigh argues that by assuming responsibility for the food on our fork and the route by which it gets there, animals can be an optimal source of food, fiber, and environmental management. This new edition covers:Integrating animals into your garden or homesteadStep-by-step color photos for beef, pork, lamb, and poultry butchery100+ recipes for whole-animal cookingCulinary highlights: preparing difficult cuts, sauces, and extrasCharcuterie, including history, general science, principles, and tooling upThe economics and parameters for responsible meat production 
 
Eating diversely may be the most revolutionary action we can take to ensure the sustainability of our food system. The Ethical Meat Handbook, 2nd Edition challenges us to take a hard look at our dietary choices, increase self-reliance, and enjoy delicious food that benefits our health and our planet. 
 
“A powerful, positive book about a powerful, positive alternative, engaging us in shaping a new food and agriculture narrative.” —Jean-Martin Fortier, author of The Market Gardener

    Morocco That Was

    Until 1912 Morocco had never suffered foreign domination, and its mountainous interior was as closed to foreigners as Tibet. Walter Harris was the exception. He lived in the country for more than thirty-five years, and as The Times correspondant he observed every aspect of its life. He describes the unfettered Sultanate in all its dark, melodramatic splendour. Harris was an intimate of at least three of the ruling Sultans and a man capable of befriending even his kidnapper. Included in this volume is his account of his most audacious expedition. Only three Christians had ever visited the walled city of Sheshouan: one was poisoned, one came for an hour disguised as a rabbi… the other was Walter Harris.
