Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarterby Bruce Weinstein
Synopses & Reviews
A ham is (let us not mince words) a pigs rear end. Its a hefty hunk of flesh and bone, weighing in somewhere between 12 and 30 pounds. Fresh or cured, ham can be prepared in innumerable ways. And (heres the clincher) ham is incredibly delicious—the kind of meat whose sheer scrumptiousness can entice even the most diehard vegan into having second thoughts.
In Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter, Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarborough take readers on a globetrotting tour of the whole wide wonderful world of ham, from the Philippines to Spain, the Caribbean, the American South, and their own home corner of rural Connecticut (where they buy and help raise a hog of their own). Gifted raconteurs and talented cooks, the pair ham it up with a series of hilarious stories and pig out on a hundred mouth-watering recipes. Dont miss this feast.
Weinstein and Scarbrough take readers on a globetrotting tour of the wide world of ham, from the Philippines to Spain, the Caribbean, the American South, and their own home corner of rural Connecticut. Includes more than 100 recipes and photographs.
