Meat: A Love Story: Pasture to Plate, a Search for the Perfect Meal


Meat: A Love Story: Pasture to Plate, a Search for the Perfect Meal Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After working undercover at a slaughterhouse for an exposé on meat processing, Susan Bourette resolved to go completely vegetarian. She lasted approximately five weeks. Dissatisfied with tofu and lentils, Susan began her quest for the perfect meat- one she could enjoy without guilt.

With a reporter's eye and a carnivore's appetite, Bourette takes readers behind the bucolic façade of the famous Blue Hill farm; on a long, hot Texas cattle drive, a whale hunt with the Inupiat and a Canadian moose hunt; and behind the counter in a Greenwich Village butcher shop. Humorous yet authoritative, Meat celebrates the pleasure of eating meat, as well as the lives of those who hunt, raise, and cook it-and most important, the rewards of being a compassionate carnivore.

About the Author

Susan Bourette is an award-winning investigative journalist based in Toronto. She writes regularly for the Globe and Mail and her writing has appeared in the Christian Science Monitor, Maclean's, and Elle.
