It's a Book Deal for Fleisher's Grass-fed & Organic Meats


After being written about in reverent terms not only in every "Butchers: So Hot Right Now" trend piece but also featuring prominently in the year's most polarizing culinary memoir, it's about sweet time the Kingston, New York-based Fleisher's Grass-Fed & Organic Meats landed a book deal. Publishers Weekly reports that the inevitable has been undertaken by publishers Clarkson Potter, who brought in writer Alexandra Zissou Zissu to assist Fleisher's proprietors (and former vegetarians — that's how you know they mean it) Joshua and Jessica Applestone through their semi-cookbook/semi-treatise, which will "offer guidance on everything from buying to butchering and cooking various grass-fed, organic meats."

    "semi-cookbook/semi-treatise" = we need a genre word for this, since it's freaking everywhere now. Seems like no one wants to tell me how to cook without also telling me how to live my life.

    Oooh, I want. Also, Karen T.: word.

    I think it's great. The best thing about CLEAVING is not the me-me-me of Powell - I don't know why anyone can really be interested in her self-involved life - but the description/depiction of Fleisher's and the great and crazy crew who works there. Love the combo of Josh's foul-mouthed-ness and his generous heart and spirit.
