About the Author

Pat LaFrieda’s first introduction to the meat world was in the summer of 1981, when he was just ten years old and learning the tricks of the trade at his father’s butchering business. Thirty years later, Pat, his father, and cousin own and operate New York City’s most prestigious and valued meatpacking facility. Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors supplies the finest restaurants in New York City, Philadelphia, DC, Las Vegas, Miami, Chicago, and more. They also operate four retail locations at Citi Field—home to the New York Mets—including two Pat LaFrieda Original Steak Sandwich stands, a LaFrieda Meatball Slider stand, and the sit-down restaurant, Pat LaFrieda Chop House. In 2014 they became the "Official Burger of the Mets." Pat has appeared on countless national TV shows including Today, The Chew, Rachael Ray Show, CNN, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, and Martha Stewart. More information can be found at

    I would call this a book for the serious cook. It is way to learn about, and prepare quality meats while respecting the product. It is beautiful. My husband told me this is the best cookbook in my collection of about the 1000 I own. It will not disappoint.

    Wonderful resource book for professionals and home cooks. Shows where cuts come from on a range of meats. Is a very interesting read and recipes (at least the 2 I've tried) are well tested. Was waiting for this one to come out and was not disappointed at all.

    It's a big book (did not expect to be that big), but with great content!
