Condition issues: Noticeable average wear to covers. Previous owner's name written inside front cover; handwritten margin notes and arrows sporadically throughout. Good research/reading copy.

From Preface: "[This book] has been an invaluable resource to foodservice buyers, educators, and students, and to those who deal with the industry and public alike. ... The new Guide has been updated to reflect the highest standards of the meat industry including trim, cutting techniques and nomenclature."

Sections for beef, pork, lamb, veal, and processed meats. Includes nutritional information and a Glossary of commonly used terms by hotel, restaurant, and institutional foodservice markets. Extensively illustrated with color photos, diagrams, and charts.

Great book if you want to start learning about the finer points of buying meat but aren't yet ready to spend $69 or more for the latest edition of this title.
