h4. From the publisher

DIY fever + quality meat mania = old-school butchery revival! Artisan cooks who are familiar with their farmers’ market are now buying small-farm–raised meat in butcher-sized portions. 

Dubbed a “rock star” butcher by the New York Times, San Francisco chef and self-taught meat expert Ryan Farr here demystifies the butchery process with 500 step-by-step photographs, master recipes for key cuts, and a primer on tools, techniques, and meat handling. 

This visual manual is the first to teach by showing exactly what butchers know, whether cooks want to learn how to turn a primal into familiar and special cuts or to simply identify everything in the case at the market.
