This review is from: Pig: Cooking with a Passion for Pork (Hardcover)
In Wales we have a saying if we think something is top drawer, and that is 'cowing lush'. In this instance it needs amending to 'porking lush' in order to describe this work!
Johnnie Mountain has never had a fair shake on the BBC because of 'chef' Marcus Wareing, however from this I became aware of Johnnie's work and eagerly anticipated the arrival of this new book.
I have not been made to be found wanting.
This should be in the stockings of any home cook, as it contains everything you needed to know about the 'humble' pig. It elevates it from a basic protein to an ingredient fit to grace any dinner table. Johnnie's writing style is friendly, welcoming and encouraging- wanting you to try everything inside for yourself. For this he is to be commended and I look forward to any others that follow.
