    In the thirteenth River Cottage Handbook, Steven Lamb shows how to cure and smoke your own meat, fish and cheese. 
     
    Curing and smoking your own food is a bit of a lost art in Britain these days. While our European neighbours have continued to use these methods on their meat, fish and cheese for centuries, we seem to have lost the habit. But with the right guidance, anyone can preserve fresh produce, whether living on a country farm or in an urban flat – it doesn't have to take up a huge amount of space.  
     
    The River Cottage ethos is all about knowing the whole story behind what you put on the table; and as Steven Lamb explains in this thorough, accessible guide, it's easy to take good-quality ingredients and turn them into something sensational. Curing & Smoking begins with a detailed breakdown of any kit you might need (from sharp knives to sausage stuffers, for the gadget-loving cook) and an explanation of the preservation process – this includes a section showing which products and cuts are most suitable for different methods of curing and smoking. The second part of the book is organised by preservation method, with an introduction to each one, and comprehensive guidance on how to do it. And for each method, there are, of course, many delicious recipes! These include chorizo Scotch eggs, salt beef, hot smoked mackerel, home-made gravadlax … and your own dry-cured streaky bacon sizzling in the breakfast frying-pan. 
     
    With an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and full-colour photographs as well as illustrations, this book  is the go-to guide for anyone who wants to smoke, brine or air-dry their way to a happier kitchen.

     Although many sources cite The Texas Cook Book by the Ladies Association of the First Presbyterian Church of Houston (1883) as the first cookbook published in Texas, Caroline Chase’s slim volume was published a year earlier and thus predates the established title. It was advertised in the May 25th edition of the Brenham Weekly Banner and had successful local circulation based on Chase’s reputation as a marvelous hostess and cook. Mrs. Chase states that her many friends prevailed on her to publish the receipts she had been using for over twenty-five years. Folksiness and firm assurance characterize her writing, and the recipes included are primarily for condiments, drinks, baked goods including over three dozen different cakes, vegetables and soups. In addition to a few exotic concoctions such as Cucumber Catsup (contains no tomatoes) and Biscuits for Dyspeptics, the book contains a modest number of practical household mixtures such as onion water to keep flies from damaging picture frames. This edition of The Cider Maker’s Manual was reproduced by permission from the volume in the collection of the American Antiquarian Society, Worcester, Massachusetts. Founded in 1812 by Isaiah Thomas, a Revolutionary War patriot and successful printer and publisher, the Society is a research library documenting the life of Americans from the colonial era through 1876. The Society collects, preserves, and makes available as complete a record as possible of the printed materials from the early American experience. The cookbook collection includes approximately 1,100 volumes.
