Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
British chef Mountain, who alleges his greatest childhood memory is of a bacon sandwich, owns Westminster restaurant The English Pig and has appeared on the BBC2 television series Great British Menu. His debut cookbook, organized by type of dish (e.g., "Home Favorites," "Spicy & Aromatic," "Slow-Cooked"), highlights a variety of ways to prepare pork, like smoking, grilling, and braising. Some dishes, like Ham & Apple Quesadillas, are quick and easy, while others, like Slow-Roasted Pork Belly, are for special occasions. VERDICT A good starting point for readers squeamish about true nose-to-tail eating. Pork lovers who enjoyed Carol Wilson & Christopher Trotter's The Whole Hog can add these satisfying recipes to their repertoires.
