Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It's great to see some coarse, English-style sausage being championed so ably over the pond. For too long sausages have been made cheaply and without care - here's a book to set that right." — Tim Wilson, owner of The Ginger Pig, London, UK"

You hold in your hands the La Technique of sausage-making. Loaded with beautiful photo-process and unparalleled information, this is the new gold standard for books on the subject. Ryan Farr is a stuffing savant and instructor extraordinaire. Meat, Salt, Fat and Technique is a must-have for anyone interested in making links from amateur to experienced." - John Currence, chef/owner, City Grocery Restaurant Group"

What I love about Ryan Farr's new sausage book is the clear directions on how to make sausages accompanied with great 'how to' illustrations. Photos do such a better job showing you exactly what to look for when grinding, mixing and stuffing meat into casings. The recipes are laid out not only in cups and spoons but in grams and percentages which makes it very easy to scale up or down the recipes. This is the way to present recipes which makes Ryan's book not only useful for the home and restaurant cook but the professional sausage maker interested in making large batches." — Bruce Aidells, author, The Great Meat Cookbook"

Ryan has been sharing his knowledge about whole animal butchery for years through 4505's farmers market stand, butchery classes, and his first book, Whole Beast Butchery. Now, with Sausage Making, he's taken it a step further and shows practical and delicious ways to use the most under-appreciated parts of the animal. The recipes for each sausage are paired with bold cross-section photos, a perfect way to visualize the ingredients and the sausage-making process." - David Chang, chef/owner of Momofuku

Farr (Whole Beast Butchery), chef and owner of 4505 Meats in San Francisco, and Battilana (senior editor, TastingTable.com) use precise instructions and step-by-step photographs to teach readers how to make sausages, condiments, buns, and classical French preparations, such as chicken and egg galantine, a whole deboned chicken stuffed with sausage, fava beans, and a hard-cooked egg. To prepare recipes like chorizo, Cajun boudin, and blood bologna, readers will need a meat grinder, food processor, and sausage stuffer. An instant-read thermometer, scale, vacuum sealer, and terrine mold are also helpful. Unlike Susan Mahnke Peery's Home Sausage Making, this guide does not contain additional recipes for cooking with sausage. VERDICT Recommended for seasoned home cooks who'd like to advance their technique and expand their repertoire.
