The porky pig—juicy, delectable, and irresistibly flavorful—has found its spotlight in American cuisine after being overshadowed by beef and chicken in the distant past. Today, the wondrous pig is celebrated in restaurants and household dining tables all over the country as crispy strips of bacon, tender pork loins, succulent hams, and bouncy sausages; so, what better way to take our relationship with piggy even further than with a cookbook dedicated to cooking the most scrumptious parts of the pig?
In loving detail, bacon maven and pork pro Jennifer Pearsall highlights the consumer-friendly parts of the pig that you can find readily in any grocery store—loins and tenderloins, ham, bacon, sausage, and shoulder; the parts you want to eat the most! In over fifty recipes, she illustrates how to make full use of each part for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as snacks on the go. Without using the typical dry “cookbook voice,” Pearsall takes you on a culinary journey through each recipe with her expertise and passion, sharp and witty tongue, personal anecdotes, and exhaustive details on how to cook the pig just right.
Discover the versatility of the pig, express yourself in a multitude of porky creations, and honor the pig that we so often take for granted!

I don’t usually “read” cookbooks, but I find this one to be interesting reading as well as full of great recipes. Very good!
Bought this for my husband for Christmas. I think it was his favorite gift and he’s already made a stuffed loin recipe.
This is a really fun book … if you cook pork it will give you great inspiration. Buy it.
