Reviews

"We all know the benefits of aging meats and that superb steak we get in a top-class restaurant, but probably had not quite realised how achievable this was by just following some simple steps. This is a step-by-step guide covering the choice cuts, what is worth aging and then actually aging it. For me, it backs up some of the principles I have learnt from trial and error of hanging my venison carcasses. It is not a book you will pick up and read in one go, but more a reference guide that will help you understand what is going on through the aging process, species by species." — BASC
