Another -the newest- book by Jennifer McLagan, who is the sort of cook I think I’d like to be friends with. We reviewed Fat earlier this week, well Odd Bits is a timely review of many of the cheaper, weirder bits of animal we mostly leave behind at the butchers and how they make a great meal. Anyone who has Fergus Henderson’s beautiful little book Nose To Tail will love this. Odd Bits encourages adventurous cooking with items such as sweetbreads (my favourite) brisket, beef cheeks and liver. As we all review our household budgets, re-looking at the cheaper but often tastier cuts of meat is a great idea.
