A Meat Library! A is for aitch bone, B is for bacon, C is for cartilage…

It occurred to us that The Butcher’s Guild members offer a virtual library of meat and food books. If you are thinking about Christmas gifts, here are titles from our members (and more are in the works for next year!). Links below are for Amazon, but of course we think it is way cooler to buy from a local bookstore.
