Much Ado About Mutton [hardcover]

20.00

Much Ado About Mutton is the first comprehensive story of mutton and its impact on the culture, history and landscape of the United Kingdom and elsewhere. It explains what the popular sheep breeds were in mutton's Victorian heyday; how and where to buy mutton; a recipe section; and the sheep farmer's year. It tells why shepherds were buried with wool between their fingers, what a wether is, Mrs Beeton's favourite mutton breed, what Captain Scott ate on his last birthday dinner on his way to the South Pole; what American GIs thought of tinned mutton and why and how the gift from a Spanish King spawned three national sheep industries.

Chapters cover Mutton Then and Now; Managing Mutton; Mutton in the Kitchen; Mutton Recipes; Directory of Suppliers; UK Sheep Breeds
