The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook
Healthy Cooking & Good Living with Pasture-Raised Foods
The original cookbook for grassfed and pastured meats that has become the classic go-to reference for the local food movement:
“Farming is a world of its own,” writes author and grass-based farmer Shannon Hayes, “tied more to the ebb and flow of nature than to the pulse of changing food trends.” Take a passionate journey with The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook through the lush, emerald-green fields of America’s best pasture-based farms, where cattle, pigs, bison, goats, sheep, and poultry roam freely, eating what nature intended and acting on their natural instincts.
In The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook, Hayes details her own journey from farmer to foodie and back to the farm again. She lays out, in simple terms, the nutritional, environmental, social, and animal-welfare benefits of grass-fed foods and offers simple strategies for finding and preparing grass-fed meats and dairy products, as well as foolproof techniques for getting the most out of your purchases.
Inside The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook, you’ll discover the unique flavors and distinct characteristics of foods that come from animals raised on pasture. You’ll learn how meat and dairy products are meant to taste through a multitude of mouth-watering recipes, including Hayes’s own and her favorites from other pasture-based farmers. Each recipe is carefully selected and tested, and geared toward home cooks who have a desire to eat healthy, home-cooked meals.
“One of the greatest joys of cooking and serving grass-fed meats and dairy is knowing that they come from farmers who have made conscious choices about stewarding the land in environmentally responsible ways, raising livestock in a humane fashion, and living their own lives in accordance with their values. Here you’ll meet many of those farmers and have access to their favorite recipes. It’s my hope that as you read their stories and savor their favorite dishes, you’ll come to realize the magnitude of your decision to support them and their colleagues by making grass-fed meats and dairy your first choice.” – Shannon Hayes, The Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook
