Filled with historical and culinary lore as well as more than 100 recipes, this gourmet celebration of the pig and all its parts is a must-have for every pork fan, bacon-sandwich supporter, and sausage addict

Completely international and full of fantastic photographs and an engaging text, this book features recipes such as Escalopes of Pork with Avocado and Sage; Loin of Pork with Mustard and Vermouth; Leek and Smoked Bacon Risotto; Tomato, Ham and Herb Tarts; Scotch Eggs; Pig's Liver with Lemon and Honey; and Cassoulet. Includes dual measurements.
