"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.
James Beard Award-winning chef Symon owns several acclaimed restaurants in the Midwest and is an Iron Chef of Food Network's Iron Chef America. His second cookbook has meat-centric chapters ("Beef," "Pork," "Lamb and Goat," "Poultry," and "Game") that contain shopping advice and suggested cooking methods for individual cuts. Complimentary sides including Tomato Salad with Red Onion and Dill are secondary to such globally influenced mains as Smoked Pork Butt with Habanero Glaze and Goat Ragu with Pappardelle. VERDICT Symon fans and readers who liked Rick Tramonto's Steak with Friends will enjoy these hearty meat dishes. The recipes pose few shopping challenges, but they demand a sizable equipment inventory. (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
