Product Description

About the Author

Stanley Marianski is the author of eleven books which include topics on meat smoking, pickling and making alcoholic beverages. Stanley actively participates in many forums and conferences related to meat smoking; he is a regular participant of the Wedliny Domowe National Conference in Poland where purveyors of meat products get the opportunity to showcase their goods. His main objective in writing his books which always contain diagrams is to help the reader "understand the sausage making process" and then "create his own recipes." His passion for creating unique sausage blends have been handed down from generations and he looks forward to continue sharing this passion with sons who also co-authored most of his books.

Having been disappointed by other books on the subject, I ordered this. My interest was primarily in fresh sausages, but this book covers a huge breadth of fresh, cooked, and dried, smoked and unsmoked, and every possible ingredient from all around the world. We've branched out from simple British bangers, but we've not yet covered a fifth of what this book has to offer.

It has two great strengths. Half of the book is dedicated to explaining not just how to make the different types of sausage, but why the techniques work. That means that you understand what you're doing, and can confidently make changes in formulations or processes to create your own delicious recipes.

But it also includes a great number of recipes which are meticulously set out. The ones that we've tried work brilliantly (Swedish potato sausage, anyone?) but are also a very sound basis for experimentation.

It covers bacon, hams, brawn, and other preserved meat too. We've cured hams successfully in the past, and this book has inspired us to try again.

Although it's not meant as a simple introductory book, it's perfectly suitable for a beginner, particularly one who is prepared to skip some of the more technical explanations at first. My one criticism of it as a beginner's book is that the first chapter, on the "Principles of Meat Science" is fairly heavy going. If you're new to the game, go straight on to chapter 2!

I really looked forward to reading this book and was severely disappointed. It does contain a huge amount of information, including large sections of what appears to be advertising for a producer of professional meat processing equipment, complete with product photos, and details around the profitability of meat products depending on the use of certain additives, etc, something of absolutely no interest to the home cook or butcher.

The presentation and editing of the book is terrible. It was obviously written by somebody who did not have English as their first language - the language ranges from somewhat peculiar to nonsense. A good editor would have solved this, just like he would have solved the jumble of American units used throughout the book, with haphazard translation into metric.

Finally, most of the taste references in the book seem to refer to Polish products (that I have never tasted and hence can't relate to), which makes that aspect of the text useless.

This could potentially have been a good book - the authors do know a lot of things (whereas many others seem to be lifted directly from standards or textbooks) but a prerequisite would have been a disciplined editor. As it is the recycle bin is the best place for it.

This book is a must for the serious sausage maker, although it is biased for the American smoked products it still provides useful background knowledge for the British and European sausage Maker and smoker.
The book covers meat cuts, ingredients and handling techniques as well detailing equipment required and how to make a smoker.

Very detailed and the science explained well, lots of recipes. Perfect for a beginner. Has measurements in Metric as well as US.
This popped up in the similar items list to the book I wanted and the kindle price was too good to miss, very happy with this purchase.
