Beyond Nose to Tail, Part 2
Fergus Henderson is revered throughout the world for his unpretentious and respectful approach to meat. As he says, 'it would be disingenuous to the animal not to make the most of the whole beast; there is a set of delights, textural and flavoursome, which lie beyond the fillet.'
In this new collection of recipes, Fergus inspires with more carnivorous classics such as braised shoulder of lamb, pigeon pie, venison liver and pressed pig's ear, as well as extending his no-nonsense approach to the world of breads and sweets - sourdough loaves and lardy cakes, puddings such as chocolate baked Alaska, burnt sheep's milk yoghurt and goat's curd cheesecake, and delicious ice-creams including bay leaf and the famous Dr Henderson.
Cooks worldwide will covet and cherish Beyond Nose to Tail, and give it a place of honour on their shelves alongside Fergus's first collection.
