5.0 étoiles sur 5 A love affair with a food and a culture 15 mars 2014

It is the definitive book on Spanish charcuteria, that alone makes this an important book. But, it is so much more than a exhaustive and thorough review of a culinary tradition. It is an amazing book. Few books on food fire the imagination as much as this book did for me. The author did more than document a culture and its charcuteria traditions; he captures your interest by appealing to your heart as much as he appeals to your intellect. It is clear that this author has a love affair with Spanish cuisine and culture and his passion and respect for the traditions comes across in every page. It is totally engrossing and sweeps you into its content; and it is the content that puts the book over the top.

First of all it provides you with clearly written and easily accessible instructions. He starts with the pig. The challenges and threats that exist to the preservation of the historically important pig breeds and the husbandry practices that make the pigs so remarkable. Pigs are natures glorious gift to us. He discusses the butchering traditions of Spain and how they differ from our own and how those differences affect the quality of the products produced. He does this without being screechy, there are no screeds here, just thoughtful commentary. He talks about the techniques of preserving and preparing the parts of the pig. He gives you technical information without overwhelming you; his explanation of the butcher's ratios is excellent as a simple example. He also recognizes that most readers will not have sophisticated equipment available to them and he talks about how to improvise solutions for a home practitioner.

The book is about charcuteria, Consequently is not just about the pig. He introduces us to seafood and the Spanish methods of preservation. He provides recipes for condiments and accompanying side dishes that complement the charcuteria. He also does an interesting thing; he brings traditional treatments and modern interpretations together and shows us that traditions and innovation can coexist.

As much as I enjoyed this book I have to say that it might be a bit overwhelming for a novice charcuterist. Having this said that I would still say buy the book. The reason is simple, it will ignite your imagination and it will make you say; I want to do that or I want to try that. You will love the recipes. The illustrations and photographs enhance the text and help the reader visualize the information provided. This is more than a culinary book, it a love letter to a culture and its charcuteria traditions. Worth every penny.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally a book for Spanish charcuterie! 5 avril 2014
Par Hunter Angler Gardener Cook - Publié sur

This is a book that I foresee using for many years to come. I've been cooking Spanish food for about a decade, and while I'd made many batches of Spanish-style sausage using the books of the late, great Penelope Casas, I had always hoped that there would be a book with a more serious slant on Spanish sausage-making. This is that book. Weiss knows his meat and his sausage-making, where you must be precise and where you can fudge a little.

The breadth and depth of recipes for salami and fresh sausages in this book, not to mention instructions for making your own Spanish-style ham (if you are brave and patient) are worth the price alone. But Weiss also has excellent recipes for curing fish - including salt cod - making pickles of all shapes and sizes, as well as recipes for composed dishes and desserts. Iberico lard cookies, anyone?

Be forewarned, however: This is not a basic charcuterie book. It is important to have some basic knowledge of how to make sausage before tackling these recipes. Can you do them as a oure novice? Yes, you can make simple chorizo and such, but pay very close attention to Weiss' safety instructions. If you are a newbie, Brian Polcyn and Michael Ruhlman's "Charcuterie" is probably a better place to begin. If you do know how to make sausages, however, you can find yourself getting lost in these recipes -- and I mean that in a good way. So many ways to make blood sausage and chorizo!

The only issue I have with this book are his canning instructions. He makes it appear that you can safely can, say, cured anchovies with a boiling-water bath. This is unsafe, and maybe he doesn't mean it, but as I read this book the only place I kept taking issue with Weiss was his canning instructions -- except for his recipes for pickles. His procedures for canning those are perfectly safe.

Bottom line: Don't make this your first sausage-making book. But if you a) are into Spanish cooking, b) love making sausage, and/or c) want a great glimpse into the Spanish meat culture, buy this book. You will not be sad.

Don't let the cover fool you. It looks so serious and traditional but when you open the book and start turning the colorful pages you immediately know that you have a fun filled educational book written by a passionate chef and the many important tips he learned from his mentors that just happen to be some of the most influential chefs in Spain and beyond. I was so excited to receive my book in the mail yesterday that I ran down to get it autographed today! Can't wait to eat, breath and dream charcuterie! Charcuteria: The Soul of Spain is one kickass book if I say so myself.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 REAL Spanish Charcuteria 20 avril 2014
Par James Ellsworth - Publié sur

REAL is the word to summarize this 'how to' book and its Spanish focus on charcuterie--the curing, smoking and preserving of meats, poultry, fish and vegetables in ways they are served in places like tapas bars or can be purchased in specialty shops. Jeffrey Weiss graduated from the well-regarded Hotel and Restaurant School at Cornell University--say, as good as the Culinary Institute of America, but with a broader focus. Down the road, he worked for José' Andres--a great Spanish-American chef whose cookbooks I love. Real is also what the reader gets with Mr. Weiss' 'writing voice': he has a vulgar turn of mind that sometimes finds its way onto the page, as already noted by other reviewers. He also lets a few too many Spanish words dance upon the page without providing explanations in English for Anglophone readers. 'Adobo', 'Escabeche' and 'Embutidos' come quickly to mind as examples. Of course, this is a book that means to celebrate Spanish culture and America has plenty of residents who speak plenty of Spanish.

The genesis of the book is the year Jeffrey Weiss spent as an ICEX fellow studying foodways in Spain and that is where the authenticity comes in. The author begins with the famous Iberico breed of pig, explaining how it is raised and slaughtered, in this case, in a convivial group setting at a farmhouse. He takes the reader step by step through breaking down the carcass into some basic cuts and covers grinding, seasoning, stuffing into casings, linking, fermenting, smoking, drying and so on. Chapter four provides a detailed explanation of brines and brining; cures and curing. There is a brining table that contains information on brining whole and selected cuts of beef,chicken, turkey and, of course, pork. Other chapters present categories of dishes: marinated items under the headlines of 'Adobos', Escabeche, and so on. 'So on' includes: Conserves and Confits, Pates and Terrines, Garnishes and Salsas and other accompaniments (simple desserts) and appropriate beverages. Recipes are provided for curing a traditional ham, for preserving lard and bacon, for salting anchovies, for making typical tapas from salt codfish, partridge, pork products, vegetables like mushrooms and mixed vegetables--selected items the author likes and offers at his restaurant that are also typical of Spain. Pictures of products and platings go with each recipe so we can see how they come out. Making the recipes, in a good many cases, also requires the reader to have read, understood and remembered the foundational chapters on tools, materials and techniques. This level of commitment may be beyond the needs of 'coffee table book' readers and it will not be necessary for readers who are along primarily to enjoy the food tourism!

The photography in this book is excellent. It was provided by Nathan Rawlinson and there are fine illustrations by Sergio Mora. These skilled craftsmen deserve to be recognized on the cover and they are! I only wish that the editor had insisted on suitable captions for each picture. This is a glaring omission.

Still, I love this book because I make things like these and this book's recipes tell me how to make more things exactly like these. Were I to continue to travel in Spain (as I have) I would also want to read this book to help me to recognize items for a 'pick up picnic' or to order from a fine menu.

Text, pictures, information: this book is a 'must have' for home cooks who want to make a cross-section of 'charcuterie' in the Spanish manner. It is not a classic of cookbook writing style, nor is it intended to be a comprehensive treatise on the subject.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 FANTASTIC BOOK! 2 mai 2014

If you like to make your own sausages, and other cured meats this is a great book. This book explains the tradition, the technique of butchering and curing meats, and the philosophy of Spanish Charcuterie. It has a great explanation of how the spanish butcher a hog and how they see each part and what it is used for. There are about six different Spanish chorizo recipes from all over Spain which look fantastic, which I am hoping to try soon. It not only gives you recipes for different Spanish sausages, escabeches, confits,pates and terrinas, but this book also gives you recipes that use what you have made. This book is not only about curing meats, it has a section on desserts and liquors, and a section on pickling. I have tried the pickles eggplant and it was very good. This book should be in your library if you enjoy taking you time when cooking. This book is an artesian book that will help you produce good quality food. I highly recommend it. This type of book often requires ingredients not found locally, just remember that many are found online if you take time to seek them on amazon, or specialty online store.
