Celebrated Australian restaurateur Andrew McConnell (Gimlet, Cutler & Co) and world class butcher Troy Wheeler unite for Meatsmith: Home Cooking For Friends and Family, featuring more than 80 brilliant recipes to inspire long lunches, impressive dinners and sensational shared celebrations.
More than another meat cookbook, this is an elegant guide to classic cooking that will inspire moments to be remembered. Discover menus for special occasions – from a fiery butcher's picnic to a summer lunch in the garden – plus how to grill the perfect rib eye, prepare a spectacular steak tartare and create one great dessert.
Master signature dishes such as beef wellington or glazed roast duck, delicious charcuterie, barbecue and roasts; and find stellar side pairings among an array of show-stealing salads, vegetable dishes, and sauces.
Andrew and Troy’s belief in quality has seen Meatsmith become one of Australia's best boutique grocers, and it is now the essential cookbook every home cook must have.
One of Australia’s most successful chef/restaurateurs, Andrew McConnell brings attention to detail, trend-setting style and good taste to everything he does. His groundbreaking restaurant group Trader House operates acclaimed fine diners such as Cutler and Co and Gimlet, wine bar Marion, all-day icon Cumulus Inc., classic pub Builders Arms Hotel, and gourmet grocer Meatsmith. He is previously the author of Cumulus Inc (Penguin) and Supernormal (republished in 2023 by Hardie Grant).
Falling into a career as a butcher in a small Australian country town, Troy Wheeler moved to Melbourne and climbed the ranks to become one of the city’s best butchers. In 2015, he launched Meatsmith with Andrew McConnell, creating one of Australia’s best bespoke butcher and grocery stores focusing on quality heritage meats, sauces, charcuterie and meals. There are now four Meatsmith stores in Melbourne: the original Fitzroy flagship, plus St Kilda, Balwyn and Brighton.
