The Whole Beast: Nose to Tail Eating

by Fergus Henderson

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | March 18, 2004 | Trade Paperback

The Whole Beast: Nose to Tail Eating is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.

The Whole Beast: Nose to Tail Eating is a certified "foodie" classic. In it, Fergus Henderson -- whose London restaurant, St. John, is a world-renowned destination for people who love to eat "on the wild side" -- presents the recipes that have marked him out as one of the most innovative, yet traditional, chefs. Here are recipes that hark back to a strong rural tradition of delicious thrift, and that literally represent Henderson's motto, "Nose to Tail Eating" -- be they Pig's Trotter Stuffed with Potato, Rabbit Wrapped in Fennel and Bacon, or his signature dish of Roast Bone Marrow and Parsley Salad. For those of a less carnivorous bent, there are also splendid dishes such as Deviled Crab; Smoked Haddock, Mustard, and Saffron; Green Beans, Shallots, Garlic, and Anchovies; and to keep the sweetest tooth happy, there are gloriously satisfying puddings, notably the St. John Eccles Cakes, and a very nearly perfect Chocolate Ice Cream.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have! This book is an absolute must have for anyone who is a fan of using the whole animal just as the title suggests. You are not going to find recipes using more commonly known cuts of meat. You are getting a book that has recipes on Headcheese, Pig's Trotters, Lamb's Brains and so forth. There is also some beautiful soup and salad recipes that start off the book. Supposedly this book is a cult classic amongst "foodies", and for good reason. It is a book I reference constantly.

Editorial Reviews

“Fergus Henderson’s cooking is deliciously ballsy-which is as you would hope from a man whose motto is Nose to Tail Eating.” (Simon Hopkinson, The Independent)
