The River Cottage Meat Book by Jane Fearnley Whittingstall
The River Cottage Meat Book

Islander, January 10, 2011

I am a little perplexed that Powell's list the author as "Jane" Fearnley Whittingstall. Hugh would probably chuckle though. After nearly 30 years of making roast turkey for Christmas dinner, my husband & I decided to follow Hugh's "Roast Beef -- The Full Monty" straight through to a glorious end with leftovers even better than, dare I say it, turkey sandwiches. I had lived for a turkey sandwich for so many years I wasn't certain I could handle it without. I did. Yorkshire pudding the next morning with bacon and maple syrup was wonderful. Did I mention Hugh also has an entire section on using leftovers in this book? He did not suggest the pudding for breakfast, my husband did and for this I put them both down as my heros until they collaborate (unknowingly) on the next meal.

Ivy's book is even more important today than it was even 3 years ago. This wonderful land we live on has everything we need except for all of us doing it. We need to grow food together.
