It takes you from the first lamb meals in the Zgros Mountains of Iraq and Iran through the banquets of renaissance Italy and finally to the locovore urban farmers of today. There will also be side trips that explore lamb in China, India and even the Navajo nation of North America.Despite its tiny size, Lamb: A Global History gives readers a strong sense of lamb as an important food in every corner of the world. Dishes like Hunan Lamb, Irish Stew, Gyros and Chelow Kebabs show how lamb is prepared around the world with easy-to-follow recipes. And more adventurous cooks can try Pan Fried Lamb Kidneys or other offal too.Lamb: A Global History will also offer a clear sense of where lamb and sheep husbandry fit in on the modern farm -either a handful of animals on an urban lot, or a vast herd on remote grasslands.It's a small book that covers lots of ground. Indeed, its range is as wide as the food it embraces.
