Everything you need to know about selecting, cooking, and enoying pork is included within. "Like Bubba Gump and his shrimp, I have a million ways to cook pork because I love it so much. If I had only one animal to eat forevermore, I would eat pigs. You could have a pork chop one day, pulled pork another, and cured bacon the next day, and they’d all taste completely different. You can't do that with chicken. Chicken tastes like chicken no matter what part of the animal you eat. And I love beef and lamb, but don't have the amazing versatility of pork. Pork can be the star of the show or a background flavor. But no matter where it shows up, pork is always welcome on my table." ---from the introduction, Kiss a Pig On Bravo TV's season 6 of Top Chef, Kevin Gillespie became known for his love of pork. He literally wears it on his sleeve with his forearm tatoo. His first book, Fire in My Belly, a James Beard Award finalist, included his famous Bacon Jam. Now he shares his passion and love of pork in a book devoted entirely to the subject. Pure Pork Awesomeness celebrates pork's delicious versatility with more than 100 easy-to-follow recipes.

Organized like the pig itself, recipes use every cut of pork from shoulder and tenderloin to pork belly and ham. Find out how to buy the best-tasting pork available, differences among heritage breeds of pigs, and what to do with new cuts like "ribeye of pork". . . all from a witty, talented chef who knows the ins and outs of cooking pork at home.

Cooking from the Heart
A Jewish Journey Through Food
Hardcover ISBN: 1742704360
Heartwarming heirloom recipes and stories from around the globe. Cooking From the Heart is a sumptuous celebration of cookery from around the world. This book reveals the stories and recipes of twenty-seven Jewish cooks and captures the importance and celebration of food in the Jewish home as a link to former homelands, their heritage, and a way to maintain the togetherness of family. We meet cooks from places as diverse as the Philippines, Morocco, Romania, and Ethiopia. They recount their sometimes tragic but always inspiring stories and detail their histories, the origins of recipes, and their experiences of food as they were growing up. From Georgia to Italy to Israel, Japan, and South Africa, the common thread is how food and flavors fill a Jewish home with love. Their unique journeys and reminiscences are accompanied by glorious color photographs and delicious recipes—from traditional dumplings, noodles, and soups to biscuits, pastries, and doughnuts. Some dishes are simple, made from the freshest ingredients, while others are complex and elaborate. There is the spicy fragrance of Indian curry contrasted with the indulgent Almond Custard Cake or Chocolate Ganache Cake and of course, legendary chicken soup, gefilte fish, and strudel. The variety of tastes and flavors is truly amazing.
