The River Cottage Curing & Smoking Handook by Steven Lamb

I have always been fascinated by the traditional preparation and storage of food, so when I had the opportunity to review "The River Cottage Curing & Smoking Handbook" by Steven Lamb I was intrigued.

This small hardcover book is filled with easy to understand information written in manner that is enjoyable to read.  It includes a wealth of information about the science of curing, equipment needed, bacteria and molds, methods and ingredients, and recipes.  But what, I believe, makes this book valuable in addition to the information are all the pictures, of which there are many.

In addition, this book was encouraging.  I really felt the author's passion for his subject and felt that he did a great job of demystifying the art of curing and smoking.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided a free copy of this book by Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinion.
