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.

    The siblings and authors of This Is a Cookbook and The Best Cookbook Ever “take the age-old concept of comfort food and update it for modern tastes” (Publishers Weekly).  Classics Recipes for Modern People is the definitive collection of classic recipes that have been reinvented, rejiggered, reordered, and re-created by Max and Eli Sussman. They believe that recipes should be ever expanding and evolving, a philosophy they practice in both their professional and home kitchens. That a dish “no matter how classic and iconic—has the ability to morph into something new and fantastic.” Divided into eight sections like “Classics from Our Childhood,” TV Dinner Classics,” “Future Classics,” and “Breakfast Classics” readers will find reinvented dishes inspired by Max and Eli’s childhood in Detroit, the frozen food aisle, followers on social media, and more.   “The cookbook displays their trademark creative spin on classic dishes, featuring recipes for things like Gefilte Fish Terrine, Duck à l’Orange, and Kibbeh and Tzatziki. It’s decidedly not Kosher (see: Pork Burger with Apple Ketchup, Shellfish Shells), but it speaks to the contemporary trend of repurposing traditional Jewish foods to make them shine in a modern context.”—Tablet   “Spotlights their cooking chops and dead-on wit in equal measure . . . For the book, the brothers took a novel tack to gather recipes: crowd-sourcing for childhood culinary classics.”—The Forward   “Home cooks interested in adding to their comfort food canon will likely find some inspiration in this eye-catching collection . . . The Sussmans’ thoughtful collection is sure to jar readers from their comfort (food) zones and encourage them to branch out to incorporate new flavors and ingredients.”—Publishers Weekly

    Vegetarian lunch, picnic, and appetizer recipes from the legendary Buddhist monastery. “These are delectable dishes worthy of a feast!” —Menupause   Tassajara Zen Mountain Center, set deep in California’s Ventana Wilderness, is famous for its healthy gourmet vegetarian cuisine.

It is full of gorgeous spreads, amazing tofu recipes, delicious vegan cookies and salad ideas.” —Mette the Homeopath   “The cookies are all of that slightly healthy, hippy ilk, but in a good way. These cookies are perhaps too good for a meditation retreat: I would probably spend more time obsessing which cookies they were putting in my bag lunch, than meditating into a Zen state of detachment . . . but hey, maybe that’s just me.” —The Back Yard Lemon Tree
