The Butcher's Book

3 reviews


In recent years, Hendrik and his father Raymond Dierendonck have become the reference when it comes to meat. They deliver only the highest quality and are followed by numerous top chefs.

Dierendonck is one of the pioneers of the international nose to tail philosophy, which literally utilizes all the meat from a slaughtered animal. He has specialized in the breeding and maturation of exceptional meat, including that of the West Flemish red beef.

This publication is a reworked edition of the cult book The Butcher's Book, which has been expanded to include dozens of timeless recipes. Rediscover the most delicious classics from the butcher's counter and from Dierendonck's star restaurant Carcasse, dwell on the butcher's craft and learn to prepare meat à la Dierendonck yourself.

With text contributions by Hendrik Dierendonck, René Sépul and Marijke Libert, and classy photography by Thomas Sweertvaegher, Piet De Kersgieter and Stephan Vanfleteren.

"Eating less but better meat, that's the future of artisanal butchery."

- Hendrik Dierendonck

"Hendrik Dierendonck has become a true master of the butcher's trade. He continues the family tradition and devotes himself with great dedication to preserving the craft and growing top-quality meat. At the same time, he motivates both colleagues and future butchers. Hendrik remains humble and generously shares his knowledge with others; his smile and positive outlook are contagious to everyone around him. What Hendrik accomplishes in the butchery field continues to inspire me, and I am extremely grateful to call him my colleague and friend."

- Adam Danforth

"Long live butchers, for they are the custodians of an ancient art. Today more than ever they show respect for animal welfare and are imbued with the need to be responsible carnivores. Hendrik is a wonderful example of that."

- Dario Cecchini

Great book!

Had the wrond item delivered (NL book came instead of EN). When I reported the mistake, it was promptly solved. Very happy with that. (it was funny to receive the first book, the one in NL, in a styrofoam box with ice! :) ). Thanks for the great service and product!
