In Pig, charismatic chef Johnnie Mountain shares his pork-preparation secrets in more than 100 delicious recipes like Grilled Garlic & Sage Pork Chops and Pork Loin in a Fennel-Salt Crust. Practical features explaining the different cuts of meat and how to smoke, preserve, and cure, plus smart-phone links to instructional videos, make Pig a pork-lover's dream.
