Descrição

In 'Raising Steaks, 'Betty Fussell saddles up for a spirited ride across America on the trail of our most iconic food.When we bite into a steak's charred crust and pink interior, we bite into contradictions that have branded our national identity from the start. We taste the colliding fantasies of British pastoralists and Spanish ranchers that erupted in land wars between a wet-weather East and a desert West. We savor the ideas of wilderness and progress that clashed when we replaced buffalo with cattle, and then cowboys with industrial machines. We take in the contradictions of rugged individualism and the corporate technology that we use to breed, feed, slaughter, package, and distribute the animals we turn into meat. And we participate--as do the cattlemen and chefs, feedlot operators and rodeo stars, boot makers and scientists Fussell talks with--in the mythology that inspires cowboys to become technocrats and presidents to play cowboy.'Raising Steaks 'is a celebration of, and an elegy for, a uniquely American Dream. 'Crisscrossing the nation, visiting everyone from small ranchers to famous chefs to corporate honchos, Fussell skillfully explains why beef, steak in particular, has come to symbolize what this country is all about, for good and ill ... You'll want to dust off the grill and get cooking.--'Chicago Tribune'In 'Raising Steaks, 'Betty Fussell saddles up for a spirited ride across America on the trail of our most iconic food.When we bite into a steak's charred crust and pink interior, we bite into contradictions that have branded our nation from the start.

We see rugged individualism and corporate technology collide when we breed, feed, slaughter, package, and distribute the animals we turn into meat. And we participate--like the cattlemen, chefs, feedlot operators, and scientists Fussell talks with--in the mythology that inspires cowboys to become technocrats and presidents to play cowboy. 'Raising Steaks 'is a celebration of, and an elegy for, a uniquely American Dream.'Fussell approaches her subject with an uncommon capacity to suspend judgment, the better to collect as much information as possible ... You can't help admiring Fussell's tireless willingness to crawl through thornbrush, ride in a parade dressed up as a cowgirl, sit through industry conferences, and suit up in near-biohazard gear to learn butchering.'--'New York Times''[Fussell's] adventurous spirit is contagious, as is her unabashed pleasure in details ...'--'Saveur'An IACP and James Beard Award NomineeBETTY FUSSELL is the author of ten previous books, including 'The Story of Corn 'and 'My Kitchen Wars.
