Great British Cooking
Hardcover ISBN: 0711235082
Carolyn and Chris Caldicott have travelled the world in pursuit of delicious food. In this book they come home to explore the long-overlooked delights of traditional British cooking. Tried and tested recipes, some with a twist, combine with a stylish evocation of the nation's style; pubs, country lanes, sweet peas in a jar and bracing Sunday walks. Alongside the perfect bacon butty, or an old family recipe for marmalade, there are fascinating historical titbits - did you know that the Romans introduced rabbits to the British Isles as a food source, or that flocks of Turkeys used to be walked from East Anglia to London? Roll up for the Traditional Sunday Roast, a Ploughman's Lunch, Cauliflower Cheese, a Fish Supper, Steak and Kidney Pudding, Jam Roly-Poly and more!

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.

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.
