Not the book for a beginner,

This review is from: Manual of a Traditional Bacon Curer (Hardcover)
This is a really interesting book by a very knowledgeable author. For example, I suspect for someone who has had a go at bacon curing etc and wants to step up a gear, this would be a very useful book. However, I was after a step by step, ABC for a complete beginner with their first pig, just wanting to cure a belly for themselves. Unfortunately, the book doesn't go quite that far back to basics and most of the recipes are for large quantities. So, in short, a fantastic book, but not the one I needed.
