Summary

In the fourteenth River Cottage Handbook, Gill Meller shows how to keep pigs and cook with pork. 
 
Keeping a herd of pigs brings a lot of enjoyment – they are curious, intelligent and (often) lovable animals, with plenty of character. When the time comes, they can provide you with a fine carcass that can be turned into all manner of tasty things. The River Cottage ethos is all about knowing the story behind what's on the plate, and as Gill Meller explains in this accessible and comprehensive guide, by rearing and butchering your own pigs you'll be able to create a full range of delicious pork products in the most sustainable, economical and hands-on way possible. 
 
Pigs & Pork gives expert advice on choosing whether to keep your own pigs, on sourcing them and setting up their home, and on feeding and caring for them. Gill also explains how you can arrange for the pigs' eventual slaughter, and how to find a good butcher or carry out your own butchery at home and identify the different cuts of meat. And even if you are buying your pork from the butcher, there is plenty to inspire. In the mouth-watering recipe section you will find the ultimate roast pork, farmhouse pâtés, pork scratchings, brawn, sausages, rillettes, pork pies, Scotch eggs and black pudding, as well as instructions for how to home-cure your own bacon, ham and salami. And of course, there are guidelines for setting up a proper hog roast to cater for large numbers, River Cottage-style – simply the perfect fare for an outside gathering. 
 
Whether you are just after the secret to sensational crackling, or you want to go the whole hog and set up your own sty, this book will guide you on the road to pork heaven.

  • Heirloom Kitchen - Heritage Recipes and Family Stories from the Tables of Immigrant Women - cover

    Heirloom Kitchen - Heritage...

    A gorgeous, full-color illustrated cookbook and personal cultural history, filled with 100 mouthwatering recipes from around the world, that celebrates the culinary traditions of strong, empowering immigrant women and the remarkable diversity that is American food. 
     
    As a child of Italian immigrants, Anna Francese Gass grew up eating her mother’s Calabrian cooking. But when this professional cook realized she had no clue how to make her family’s beloved meatballs—a recipe that existed only in her mother’s memory—Anna embarked on a project to record and preserve her mother’s recipes for generations to come.  
    In addition to her recipes, Anna’s mother shared stories from her time in Italy that her daughter had never heard before, intriguing tales that whetted Anna’s appetite to learn more. Reaching out to her friends whose mothers were also immigrants, Anna began cooking with dozens of women who were eager to share their unique memories and the foods of their homelands. 
    In Heirloom Kitchen, Anna brings together the stories and dishes of forty-five strong, exceptional women, all immigrants to the United States, whose heirloom recipes have helped shape the landscape of American food. Organized by region, the 100 tantalizing recipes include: Magda’s Pork Adobo from the PhillippinesShari’s Fersenjoon, a walnut and pomegranate stew, from IranTina’s dumplings from Northern ChinaAnna’s mother’s Calabrian Meatballs from Southern Italy 
    In addition to the dishes, these women share their recollections of coming to America, stories of hardship and happiness that illuminate the power of food—how cooking became a comfort and a respite in a new land for these women, as well as a tether to their native cultural identities. 
    Accented with 175 photographs, including food shots, old family photographs, and ephemera of the cooks’ first years in America—such as Soon Sun’s recipe book pristinely handwritten in Korean or Bea’s cherished silver pitcher, a final gift from her own mother before leaving Serbia—Heirloom Kitchen is a testament to empowerment and strength, perseverance and inclusivity, and a warm and inspiring reminder that the story of immigrant food is, at its core, a story of American food.

    Learn the true basics of living a healthy life today!
     
    Do you want to be happy? Do you want to get rid of stress? Do you want to live a healthy life? What about losing weight and building muscle to achieve a great looking physique. This can all come true with this healthy living guide.Living a healthy life is essential for a long and happy life! This healthy living guide is a book that I have created to make it simple for you to simply achieve a healthy living. The book can be read by practically anyone. It is the ultimate healthy living guide for you to feel healthier and happier. In comparison to other books that I have read in this niche (healthy living), I have not added a bunch of nonsense content just to fill up the pages. This healthy living guide is straight to point and that covers what you need to know when trying to achieve a healthy living. 
     
    Here are some of the benefits of investing in this healthy living guide
    A more clever way of thinking
    Knowledge of how your mind and bodywork
    Motivation to change yourself
    Healthy nutrition explained
    How to maximize your energy when choosing the right food sources
    Different types of diets that you could use to build muscle, lose weight and increase general well-being
    Proper exercise starting points
    How to decrease stress
    Short summary on how to achieve success in this area
    
    
     
    This healthy living guide is what everyone NEED to accomplish anything! No matter what line of work you are in or what passions you have, the number one key to be persistent, disciplined and keep it together through all the necessary tasks is to have a healthy way of living. Have you ever thought about that? Living healthy is not difficult once you automate the health habits and rituals needed. The reason why many people cannot withstand more than a week or a month of living healthy is because it is hard and extremely difficult at the beginning, however, your brain is built to adapt and once you have gone through the first stage then everything else is just as easy as 1, 2, 3. There is one thing you need to understand in life. Nothing is as important as your mind and body. Your mind and body are with you from birth to death. This means that you need to put in extra focus and be as healthy as you can. Think about yourself as a character in a game where you have a strength level, stamina level, resistance level and so on. Having these levels high in these games usually gives you a higher chance of survival against the other players. In real life, it is somehow similar. If you are staying healthy and increasing your levels, you are going to live a longer and more fulfilled life. A healthy living is not about having a good looking body. Obviously, the good looks are always a bonus of following a healthy living guide, however, it is more important to look at what is going on inside of you. What exactly that is going on inside of your body and mind is way too complex to understand it all. This book, however, gives you what you need to know to keep all parts of you healthy and strong.It is very sad to say that the majority of the population does not really care about how to attain a healthy living. Avoiding to live healthy won't do you any good. I seriously hope that you are not one of those who lives like that. You should be aware and take care of yourself as much as possible. You are the only one responsible to make that happen. I encourage you to invest in this low-cost book and begin your journey of living a healthy life.
