Even many meat eaters recognize there's little doubt the planet would be a better place if everyone forswore animal consumption. But in the absence of such a radical shift in human dietary habits, there is the possibility of eating meat in a more ethical fashion, in which livestock are given some dignity in their short lives—permitted to be animals rather than grist in the industrial abattoir. Such an approach would mean an end to cheap fast-food burgers and a shift toward paying significantly more for locally and sustainably raised meat. Unfortunately, relatively few people have food budgets which permit paying the premium that ethical meat often requires. Still, with the success of Michael Pollan's Omnivore's Dilemma and its progeny, it's clear there is a hunger for more humane methods of procuring and consuming animal flesh. Good Meat: The Complete Guide to Sourcing and Cooking Sustainable Meat, the latest from James Beard Award-winning food author Deborah Krasner, contains more than 200 recipes for free-range birds and grass-fed beef, lamb and pork, as well as fish and wild game. Additionally, she provides tips for groups and individuals to procure relatively inexpensive meat from local farmers. —David Fellerath
