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!
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.
The book covers meat cuts, ingredients and handling techniques as well detailing equipment required and how to make a smoker.
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.
