  • By Sweeny Tod on 19 October 2011

    I had high hopes for this book. Given it's high scoring reviews. Rather too many recipes for pate/terrines and sauces and not enough detail. Several statements that are not qualified or explained.Poorly edited with a number of typos, unnecessary whole sentence repetition within the same paragraph, repetition being commonplace throughout the book and Lord knows what the table on p.227 refers to!Overall I am disappointed, this should have been a much better treatise on charcuterie, it is not. Better off with Grigson, Kutas, Ruhlman & Polcyn et al.

    As I teach charcuterie I posess most related books. This book is one of the finest and most informative books on the subject I've read including some French written books, it covers all aspects from basic matter for the beginner to more sophisticated material for the budding charcutier. I could go on and on to say how pleased I am with the content of this book but in order to keep this review short, I can tell you this is the book I now reccomend to my students when asked "if there is just one book to choose on the subject, which would it be?".Well done Chef!Marc-FredericLe Charcutier Anglais
