"Michael Symon is loved across the country by folks who watch him on Food Network's Iron Chef America, Cooking Channel's Cook Like an Iron Chef, and ABC's much-buzzed The Chew, which debuted in September 2011. Fans adore his big, charismatic personality and his seriously delicious food. But there's one thing Michael is known for above else: his unabashed love of meat. A devoted carnivore, Michael calls the cuisine at his six Midwestern restaurants "meat-centric." Now, in MICHAEL SYMON'S CARNIVORE, he combines his passion and expertise in one stellar cookbook. Michael gives home cooks just the right amount of key information on breeds, cuts, and techniques to help them at the meat counter and in the kitchen and then lets loose with fantastic recipes for beef, pork, poultry, lamb, goat, and game. Favorites include Broiled Porterhouse with Garlic and Lemon, Ribs with Cleveland BBQ Sauce, Braised Chicken Thighs with Kale and Chiles, Lamb Moussaka, and Bacon-Wrapped Rabbit Legs. Recipes for sides that enhance the main event, like Apple and Celeriac Salad and Sicilian Cauliflower, round out the book. Michael's enthusiasm and warmth permeate the text, and with 75 beautiful color photographs, MICHAEL SYMON'S CARNIVORE is a rich and informative cookbook for every meat lover"-- Provided by publisher.
