About The Book

More than 75 homestyle recipes for mains and sides, as well as notes on beverage selections.

Welcome to an exciting home butchery experience! The Home Butcher is filled with plenty of step-by-step butchery instructions—as well as techniques, tips, and tricks—and also includes homestyle recipes with easy-to-find ingredients.

This cookbook is best described as a practical informative book with plenty of great takeaway and a pleasant, conversational tone that invites home cooks to discover just how easy it is to butcher various cuts of meat and then prepare them for family and friends in the comfort of their own homes.

Easy to follow chapters guide the home butcher every step of the way when processing beef, lamb, sheep and goat, pork, poultry and fowl, rabbit, and venison and other game. Additional chapters feature tools and equipment, packaging and food preservation, and food safety.

The savory dishes featured in this quintessential book derive from the meats our featured butchers break down, using many of those same cuts available to us at the supermarket.

Examples of these delicious, approachable, and hearty recipes include:

  • Herb-Seasoned Beef Rib Roast with a savory Red Wine Pan Sauce
  • Country-Style Pork Ribs with Peach Rosemary Glaze
  • Citrus Marinated Chicken Thighs
  • Roasted Boar Leg with a tangy Mustard Caper Sauce
  • And more!


To compliment the wonderful collection of more than seventy-five recipes, many of the dishes are paired with a savory side and suggested beverage. Exquisite photography and expert design round out the informative and enjoyable pages.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your meat cleaver and dive into the fascinating pages ahead.
