Speaking of books, I went ballistic today on Amazon to get ready for spring/summer cooking, smoking, etc. I'm going on a cheese/charcuterie/sausage bender.
Land of Plenty: A Treasury of Authentic Sichuan Cooking - Fuchsia Dunlop
Artisan Cheese Making at Home: Techniques & Recipes for Mastering World-Class Cheeses - Mary Karlin, Ed Anderson
Bruce Aidells's Complete Book of Pork: A Guide to Buying, Storing, and Cooking the World's Favorite Meat - Bruce Aidells
Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking, and Curing - Michael Ruhlman, et al
Cooking by Hand - Paul Bertolli
I was at Restaurant Depot and they had whole goats as well. That's on my list to make too - I need to do some sort of animal on a spit this summer. Fuck, there just isn't enough time.
