While roast suckling pig remains the most luxurious form of pork, Rogers reveals that people also use pig?s blood to make black puddings, its tail to flavor soups and stews, and its fat for frying and as a pastry shortening. Beautifully illustrated and filled with recipes from around the world, <I>Pork</I> will be a necessary addition to the bookshelf of any lover of bacon, sausage, and pork chops.</div> read more
