Charcuteria: The Soul of Spain

Recently I returned from Asia having been away for many weeks, this always endures having to face a large amount of mail including all those bills that require paying. However on this occassion instead of facing the drudgery of official brown envelopes I was pleasantly surprised to see a large package that had been delivered from the United States. In fact it was sent from publishers whom I had no knowledge of until now that is. On opening the package I was surprised to see a copy of the above book in all it's glory, my first re-action was oh no not another charcuterie book, however it soon became evident that this book Charcuteria is different.

This book offers you the inner depths of Spain at its very best, including stories of Spanish butchers, the sharing of charcuteria techniques that are only familiar from some of Spains smallest regions. The book links the past with the future in a very sympathetic way using friends and family around the table whilst unwittingly caring for charcuteria for the next generation.

You are welcomed, fed and watered along with being given a place by a warm fire as you thumb the pages of this book, a must have for your bookshelf, however its better placed on your kitchen table.
