The quintessential "pork for chicks" cookbook! There’s a whole world of pork to love, as demonstrated in this cookbook devoted to all the favorite cuts from the hog. Plump sausages sputtering on the grill, thick bacon sizzling in a pan, a juicy pork chop from the oven—pork comes in so many wondrous forms. From grilling and frying to braising and pickling, author Libbie Summers has a special way with pork, taking comfortable old-fashioned dishes and updating them with fun and stylish twists. As a child, Summers spent much time on her grandparents’ hog farm in Missouri—even wrestling pigs at the state fair— and grew to become a culinary producer for Paula Deen.
