Product description


The newcomer's guide to an old culinary practice revisited for the '90s The ancient art of charcuterie (from the French for "cooked meat") once referred only to pork preparations, but today it is used to describe products that are made with all kinds of meat, fish and game. Written by a master chef and his protege, this is the student, amateur or veteran cook's guide to the world of charcuterie-complete with illustrated coverage of techniques, equipment, sanitation and safety and ingredients. It provides preparation , curing, and smoking instructions for many different kinds of foodstuffs-from the simple and rustic to the elegant and exotic. This includes sausages, hams, bacon and game birds as well as various fish and meat pates. Professional Charcuterie is the best, most practical, and up-to-date guide to an enduring and constantly evolving culinary artform. * Provides over 200 recipes * Suggests guidelines for creating healthier products using fat-free oils and dry curing JOHN KINSELLA (Cincinnati, Ohio), one of fewer than 100 Certified Master Chefs in the U.S., teaches culinary arts at Cincinnati Technical College.

Trained in London, he served his apprenticeship at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane. DAVID T. HARVEY (Cincinnati, Ohio) trained as a chef with Kinsella.
