How to choose, cook and eat it

Adrian Richardson



Author tour: Sydney, Brisbane & Melbourne


‘Like it or not, animals have played a major role in our development as a species… 

I think the time has come for us to try to get to know our meat again.’ 

Adrian Richardson

Chef Adrian Richardson is passionate about meat. Passionate, opinionated, dedicated. A

successful chef, restaurateur and self-confessed carnivore, Adrian believes meat is a vital

part of both our diet and our culture - and that cooking it should be a part of our daily


MEAT, Adrian’s first cookbook, reflects his long-held beliefs about the values of eating

meat and, importantly, knowing where it comes from, and offers a fabulous selection of

recipes from his exhaustive repertoire. From the perfect steak to slow-cooked brisket,

suckling pig to barbecued quail, Adrian knows what it takes to create the perfect texture

and blend of flavours in all creatures great and small - and how to give meat dishes that

restaurant-quality edge, with minimum fuss, at home. 

Offering a range of delicious Mediterranean recipes, succulent Sunday roasts for dinner

parties, and every day recipes for delicious yet value-conscious meat cookery, MEAT is

full of great tips for both the novice and the confident home cook.

MEAT combines modern Australian design with wonderful contemporary photography by

Dean Cambray to offer a fresh look at the way we eat meat today. And if you believe, as

Adrian does, that ‘the reality is that we humans seem to be hard-wired to eat and enjoy

meat’ then this is the book for you! And if you still need convincing, just try and resist that

recipe for the perfect crackling…
