A Cut Above, cooking with AngusPure has won at the Gourmand World Cookbook awards 2015.

The book has been judged the world's best meat cookbook for 2015.

The largest competition of its kind in the world, this is a huge event for food culture and an even bigger event for cook books, the Gourmand World Cookbook awards this year had over 200 countries participating.

A Cut Above, cooking with AngusPure, a new title from the authors of the award winning cookbook, Volcanic Kitchens, come and join us.  A wonderful collection of beef recipes, from the classical to the more unusual—and plenty in between. This book has broad appeal, the recipes include quick and easy, long and slow and there is also something for the more adventurous cook. There is a great selection of barbeque recipes and probably one of the most comprehensive selections of offal recipes you are likely to find. Interspersed throughout the book are interesting stories with photographic essays of the dedication, history, and commitment of some of NZ's leading Angus stud breeders, in their quest to produce great tasting, grass-fed beef in New Zealand.          

Browse through the 240 pages and be inspired with the culinary delights. Gain an insight into some of New Zealand's farming history, read how the next generation is moving forward, and all while enjoying some eye-catching landscape photography.

This is a quality hard cover book with a smart french-fold jacket, A Cut Above will make an ideal gift for that hard to please man-of-the-house or anyone with an interest in cooking and/or farming.
