5.0 out of 5 stars How do you slice it thinner?, 26 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had my first taste this morning and all I can say is: wow. Couldn't be easier to make. Just bought a loin of pork from the butchers, whacked it in a tupperware box with the cure mix. Left it in the fridge (turning it over when I could remember), and a week later, hey presto fantastic smokey bacon. My only question is about slicing. I'm a bit ham-fisted (geddit?) when it comes to slicing and I ended up cutting very thick slices. Any tips on how to slice it a bit thinner?

The most definitive guide I've yet read to understanding authentic Italian ingredients and how to cook them in simple but delicious ways. Dotted with amusing anecdotes of the author's rich and varied life travelling the world. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars If you liked this, then check this out, 25 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Birdsong (Vintage War) (Paperback)
If you enjoyed Birdsong, then have a look at Goodbye To All That by Robert Graves. This is his autobiography and has a lot of description of his time serving in the trenches in France during WW1. It is also a fantastic book, and conjures up the atmosphere of the futility, confusion, filth and horror with an intensity similar to Birdsong. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Late night stuff par excellence, 1 Dec. 2008
Easily my favourite Original Soundtrack to a film. I know some hard core Tom Waits fans may disparage the Crystal Gayle collaboration, but for my money this is what he does best - beautiful tunes, great lyrics, and Crystal's vocals are a brilliant counterpoint to his gruff, half-mumbled lines. After hours at home with a large scotch, this is perfect stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bent's 2nd best album, 29 Nov. 2006
Followed on in a similar vein from Programmed to Love (and why not, that's a pretty good vein), viz. swirly atmospheric effects, cute samples, lovely vocals, and an underlying pop sensibility that keeps everything on the listenable side of things. As usual with Bent there are some weak points, but I defy anyone to listen to the bassline (is it sampled? - someone enlighten me please) at the start of So Long Without You, and not start smiling -it's that good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern dance for old-timers, 28 Feb. 2000
Manchester's finest DJs/Producers Mark Rae & Steve Christian produce a superb mix of soulful/garage tracks with a sprinkling of hip hop, and a closing track I last heard 20 years ago at my local youth club disco. If you're over 30, and are beginning to think dance music is becoming a bit too difficult to like, buy this, and rekindle your interest. If you like it, check out their previous CD Northern Sulphuric Soul, which contains more of their trademark soul and hip hop original tracks and remixes.
