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 Ketogenic diet is a dietary approach that involves eating only a very small amount of carbohydrates, and instead getting most of your energy from high-fat and protein rich foods.
    This style of eating forces your body to enter a state known as 'ketosis' where you burn energy differently. This typically causes amazing fat loss results, as well as an increase in energy!
    This book will explain to you everything you need to know about the ketogenic diet, ketosis, and how to safely try this diet out for yourself!
    The SAD (Standard American Diet) is full of processed and unnecessary carbohydrates that we are simply not designed to consume. The Ketogenic diet is much better suited to our bodies, and almost everyone who tries it experiences a boost in energy, mental clarity, and the elimination of that stubborn belly fat!
    Included in this book is a range of delicious Ketogenic recipes for you to try out, that will make it feel like you're not on a diet at all!
    Here Is A Preview Of What’s Included…
    	What Is The Ketogenic Diet?
    	Is Ketosis Safe?
    	The Benefits Of A Ketogenic Diet
    	How To Maintain A Ketogenic State
    	Delicious Ketogenic Recipes
