No kitchen dramas or barbecue fails ever again. Just perfectly cooked meat. OFM award-winner Neil Rankin knows how to cook meat. In this book he explains how he does it, using the foolproof methods he has honed to perfection and relies on in the kitchens of Temper in London. "If you have ever cooked a steak medium-well instead of medium-rare, a chicken that ends up dry, a stew that's tough or stringy or a rack of ribs that fall too much off the bone then this book will make your life that little bit better." Neil Rankin 'You've cost me a bloody fortune. Steak on four nights...Perfect every time. My boys - steak mad - are so happy.' Diana Henry 'Simply put: Rankin's book will make you 100% more brilliant behind the stove.' Grace Dent 'The first time I ate Neil's food, I was blown away' Tom Kerridge 'Fire-cooking is unavoidably tactile 'real' cooking and Neil is one of the heroes leading the charge. He eschews sterility and embraces flame.' Adam Perry Lang 'Meat hates to be overcooked, says Neil, so low and slow is the way to go which obviates brining, resting, letting joints come to room temperature and other shibboleths learned at our mothers' knee. There is a great deal useful and inspiring to be absorbed here from a battle-scarred Scotsman in a trucker's cap... and tongs as an extension of his fingers.' Fay Maschler 'Without any doubts the best meat/bbq book I've read! Everything about it is just spot on.' @artisanbaker 'The book is fantastic. Managed not to overcook a beef joint for the first time ever!' @KungFuBBQ

A diligent crisping, a murmuring simmer, a slow roast, a ripping hot sear: mastery of the subtleties of heat and time is Justin Smillie's hallmark. In this book, the celebrated chef of Upland explores the fundamental techniques of braising, roasting, and grilling--and shows you how to see them in new ways, to learn the rules to break them. The chapters begin with thorough lessons on these basic methods. From there, the recipes evolve to feature variations on the techniques, altering ratios of moisture, intensities of heat, reversing expected processes. Sometimes the techniques are surprising, like braising chicken leggs in the juices created by overcrowding a pan of peppers. And sometimes the results are unbelievable, like tender peppercorn-crusted short ribs, made by first steaming the ribs before searing them to a spicy crisp. This is a book about delighting in the details, about cooking by hand, about learning to see and smell and touch like a modern master. It's a book you will keep, read, learn, and cook from for years to come.
