All About the Pig

A Foodie's Guide to the Pig

Pork chops. Bacon. Country ham. No matter what your favorite way to savor, the pig is one of the most versatile animals to cook.

In his new book, The Southern Foodie’s Guide to the Pig, Nashville author Chris Chamberlain explores everything pig. He covers the anatomy of the animal, how to prepare certain cuts, Southern restaurants that best showcase the meat, and drinks and sides that complement pork dishes. Chamberlain even includes recipes for all types of barbecue sauces, from red to white to mustard to vinegar and everywhere in between, leaving open the debate of which reigns supreme.

    I feel like I need this in my cookbook collection. I have a lot of great books, but not many that focus on meat, much less, pork. I’d be thrilled to own this one.

    We are definitely pig lovers & when I was growing up, we killed hogs, scalded them, and used every part that could be used. I still love anything with pork (especially a favorite is country ham & tenderloin),
