Descriptions du produit

John Barlow, a self-confessed glutton, finds himself in a meat-lover's dream in northern Spain. Galicia, the misty-green north-west corner, reveres and consumes every part of the pig. This starts Barlow thinking about the nature of our relationship with food - what's delicious, what's nasty and what sort of obligation we have to the animals we eat. Over the course of one glorious, bilious year, Barlow tries the patience of his vegetarian wife as he goes the whole hog and vows to eat everything but the squeal, from cocido in a cantina to a chorizo feast at Carnival, from ribs to roast ham, all washed down with local wine - delicious!

A gastro-porcine adventure 6 août 2009
Par Miran Ali - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A cultural and culinary travelogue of Galicia told by a very humorous writer. Starts off very well, but about two thirds through, the poor fellow seems to lose his steam for more pork and digresses a bit. Apart from that I found it a thoroughly enjoyable and fun read. The exploration of the cultural significance of pork in Galician culture is fascinating. Unfortunately the book's marred by the absence of a map, showing the authors journey. I suppose, like a lot of other people, I know where La Coruna is, but my Galician geography ends there and a map would have been very helpful.

I read the review in The Economist; being a glutton, I ordered the book right away.

Its anecdote is quite simple: This British lad tastes some pork delicacy on a visit to her girlfriend's town in Galicia. Becomes so entranced with the flavor, he decides to eat every single part of the pig, and write about it and the Galician locality where he ate it. Soon he finds one town that celebrates a barbaric lupercalian carnival, complete with mudfights spiced with live angry ants, where mobs fight to bite the boiled head of a pig. Another features Toñito, a pampered pig hailed as the town guest for the entire year. Toñito can enter your home, sleep in your bed or defecate in the Mayor's Office. But come the day of San Antonio (hence the nickname), Toñito is butchered in the town square to the delight of all. There's a description on how an entire family takes part in a hog slaughter, a visit to Fidel Castro's aunt, a gang of whipping clowns known as Peliqueiros, and an interview with Galicia's top politician, Manuel Fraga Iribarne, the key player who eased the transition between Franco's dictatorship and modern Spain's democracy. Not a dull moment.

A fun homage to Galicia and gallegos everywhere, and a nice appetizer before dinning on tapas, iberico ham and Albariño wine. ¡Salud!

A great introduction to life in Galicia 24 août 2010
Par Traveler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Friends and I were anticipating a visit to Galicia, and I came across this book. It is a most enjoyable read and provides a great overview of the culture and landscape of Galicia. All three of us read it before we traveled to Galicia. The book is humorous, informative, and interesting -- John Barlow's tales of a year touring Galicia. At the conclusion of the book, I felt much more informed about the places I was about to visit in ways I would never learn from a travel guidebook. I highly recommend it.

John Barlow's culinary exploration of Northern Spain 16 janvier 2009
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
EVERYTHING BUT THE SQUEAL: EATING THE WHOLE HOG IN NORTHERN SPAIN tells of John Barlow's culinary exploration of Northern Spain, where he searches out all the rural corners of the country in search of the best, rarest or most outrageous meals he can find. From an heirloom breed of hog that miraculously recovered from the brink of extinction to a thousand-year ant-throwing festival and making pig-bladder puddings for Carnival, his search for the ultimate pork and its unique Spanish connections makes for a powerful presentation indeed. Any library strong in international culinary explorations or travelogues needs this.

Real hints about Galicia and its population 15 octobre 2010
Par Ana - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
If you are really interested in the pig, this is not your book. The hog quest is an excuse to review the culture, the costumes, the traditions and the real Galicia and its inhabitants. The author is right in most of his perceptions, and nails almost all his descriptions of the Galician traits. If you are planning a trip there, or if you just want to know more about this corner of Spain and its people, this is a very good book.
