Meat and Fish
Chicken & Other Birds
From the Perfect Roast Chicken to Asian-style Duck Breasts
Hardcover ISBN: 1909342505
Chicken and other types of poultry are versatile, readily available, reasonably priced, and packed full of protein, essential nutrients and vitamins. They are also the number one choice for anyone who is watching their fat and calorie intake but doesn't want to give up meat. This book brings together over 100 main course dishes that employ the whole range of cooking techniques, and that use the ubiquitous chicken as well as all the less well known birds such as turkey, goose, duck, guinea fowl, poussin, pigeon and quail. In addition, Chicken and Other Birds offers a visual tour of the birds, showing their relative sizes and discussing the differences between them, plus a buying guide â?? what to look for and how much to allow per person â?? followed by tips on storing and handling uncooked poultry, and step-by-step photos and instructions for preparing a bird before cooking (trussing, French trimming, stuffing and jointing), and for carving or jointing a whole cooked bird. The final chapter, 'Perfect Sides and Complements' is a round-up of flavoured butters, marinades, rubs and bastes, stuffings and sauces, chutneys and relishes and, last but not least, the perfect gravy. This beautifully illustrated and comprehensive book is sure to become the classic poultry cookbook that no cook can afford to be without.

Curing & Smoking
Made at Home
Paperback ISBN: 1770850775
A new series for living the good life! Made At Home This exciting series comes from the father-and-son team Dick and James Strawbridge, who live "the good life" on their small acreage. In Made At Home they share the knowledge and experience gained over years of producing an abundance of good things to eat and drink: organic fruits and vegetables eaten, juiced, fermented and preserved; pigs smoked for ham, sausages, salamis and bacon; a mixed flock of birds used for eggs and eating; and bees for honey, to name a few. It's an enviable lifestyle driven by a desire to eat well every day. It is also a lifestyle that does not require a lot of space. Made At Home contains numerous adaptations to urban and suburban life. Plants are grown in small lots and pots, chickens are kept in backyard pens, and meat items, such as sausages, are smoked in the backyard. Proof positive that anyone can live the good life. Of all the Made At Home titles, perhaps this one speaks loudest to the popularity of home-grown foods. The smoked bacon, salamis and heady cheeses we love are prime candidates for handcrafted taste. Curing and Smoking demonstrates how simple it is to use the magic of smoke to create wonderfully aromatic foods with distinctive flavors. The book follows the curing and smoking processes beginning to end, from creating a purpose-made pantry to storage. Topics include drying, curing, hot smoking, cold smoking, indoor smoking, drying and wrapping, and vacuum packing. Foods are not limited to meats and cheeses, but include fruits and vegetables, fish, ciders, seafood. Even eggs can be smoked or cured. Original and delicious recipes offer up such delights as jams and jellies, hot-smoked oysters, and fresh tomato salsa. Curing and Smoking is ideal for adventurous cooks, modern pioneers, and all food crafters.
