Description
April Bloomfield, the critically acclaimed chef behind the smash hit New York restaurants The Spotted Pig, The Breslin, and the John Dory, offers incomparable recipes and fascinating stories in this one-of-a-kind cookbook and memoir that celebrates all things pork and more. A Girl and Her Pig is a carnivore's delight, a gift from one of the food industry's hottest chefs--in the upper echelon alongside Mario Batali, David Chang, and the legendary Fergus Henderson--featuring beautiful illustrations and photographs, and refreshingly unpretentious, remarkably scrumptious recipes for everything from re-imagined British pub favorites such as Beef and Bayley Hazen Pie to Whole Suckling Pig.
