10/14/14 - BookLook Bloggers book review - The Southern Foodie's Guide to the Pig By Chris Chamberlain

Chris Chamberlain has written a masterpiece of pig.  Chris writes for many southern newsletters or blogs from his Nashville, TN base.  He has hit a home run with this cookbook.

This is not only a cookbook; it is a lesson about the hog and also reviews of southern restaurants where you can get some good pig.  The pictures are so tasty looking you can almost smell the aroma.  I grew up on a farm until I was 8 and went to a few “hog killings” myself but I sure learned a lot more from this book.  The Southern Foodie’s Guide to the Pig not only showcases the pig; it showcases the good things that go with the pig.  You’ll see recipes for hush puppies, corn bread, cinnamon pull-apart bread and he even has a recipe of the rub to use on a whole hog.  You will find recipes for drinks, breakfast, bread, soups and salads, side dishes and desserts.

If you like pork, here is your recipe book.  Calling it a cookbook or recipe book seems so cheap compared to what is in this book.  I highly recommend this book to any cook of pork.  Go pig!

I received this book from BookLook Bloggers.
