If anyone is going to help me understand and execute a well-made offal, it’s going to be Stéphane Reynaud. Really looking forward to being convinced to bring some offal to the table. :)
Book of Tripe: And Gizzards, Kidneys, Feet, Brains and All the Rest is currently available at Amazon.com. The book was released May 1, 2015 by Murdoch Books.
GIZZARDS, KIDNEYS, FEET, BRAINS, TAILS. These and other cuts that we wouldn’t usually cook, whether from lack of culinary knowledge or from fear, make up the great family of offal. Offal is all around us. It’s there lurking on a friendly butcher’s display, waiting patiently for the chance to take centre stage on our plates and shout loud and clear: Tous a table?!
STEPHANE REYNAUD is chef and owner of restaurant Villa 9 Trois in Montreuil, just outside of Paris. He won the 2005 Grand Prix de la Gastronomie Francaise with his book Pork & Sons.
