Product Description

Review

Good food writing, like good travel writing, ought to be interesting enough to be enjoyed for its own sake, even if the subject turns out not to be some misty romantic destination or some fabulously exotic cuisine. ...Thus anyone who has ever enjoyed a really good slice of salami, prosciutto, sopressata, mortadella or capocola will thoroughly appreciate Salumi, Michael Ruhlman and Brian Polcyn's comprehensive guide to the ancient Italian art of dry-curing meat. ...The authors unravel... many...culinary mysteries and--along with giving detailed, from-scratch recipes for more 100 varieties of salumi--include helpful information on equipment, prep techniques and ingredient sources. --Aram Bakshian Jr.

About the Author

Brian Polcyn is the chef/owner of Forest Grill in Birmingham, Michigan, and a professor of charcuterie at SchoolCraft College in Livonia, Michigan.

There is some good information in this book. There are also some good techniques and tips to be found. Some recipes are somewhat inspiring while others are lacking. There are references to using Pigs Bladders in more than one place. I've never seen one in a store. A couple of recipes call for using a whole Pig's Head or Ears or Jowels. Try and source those. I wouldn't go so far as to say don't buy this book. I flagged about 2 dozen pages that I will refer back to in future. Don't expect to become an expert on Italian Dry Cured Meats or Sausage based on reading this book. There are better books around but this one has some good basics to it - some of which you will not find in other books.
