Excellent book for meat eaters,
This review is from: Ginger Pig Farmhouse Cookbook (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is not a fluffy vegetarian cookbook, this is a hard hitting book aimed at serious carnivores.
It is beautifully illustrated and laid out, the recipes are very informative and easy to follow, just be careful because the ingredients on how to make some of your fav dishes may put you off for life, for example the pork pie recipe tells you that you have to use pigs trotters for the jelly, that was enough to put me off. Gross.
However i have already made the corned beef which turned out amazing.
One of my fav things in the world is Chorizo, and there is a recipe in this book for that, it was so simple and it tasted better than any shop bought chorizo i have ever had, personally however i used hungarian smoked paprika which has a better flavour.
There is a fantastic roasting table in the book too, which gives you the perfect roasting times for all meats,poultry, game etc, in gas and electric, celcius and fahrenheit, and mins per k and mins per llb. Very handy.
There is also a handy guide in the back of the book to the different cuts of meat and where abouts in the animal they are from.
Plus a fab section on jams, marmalades, chutneys, piccalli etc.
