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.
