Long Way on a Little: An Earth Lover’s Companion for Enjoying Meat, Pinching Pennies and Living Deliciously is my new bible on grass-fed meat. Much more than a cookbook, it’s a serious text on buying, cooking and overall understanding pastured meats.

Last Friday night, I was in Louisville, KY finishing up a week-long distillery trek at an awesome craft spirits sampler at the Distilled Spirits Epicenter.

At his West Village Japanese restaurant, Chef Takashi Inoue features all sorts of unusual cuts of meat. Taking the nose-to-tail trend to a whole new level, customers will find animal parts unheard of on other menus (cow’s testicles, calf’s brains, and three kinds of cow stomach among them) prepared in inventive new ways.
