I was lucky enough to get the chance to have a good read of Rachel Green’s fabulous new sausage cookbook. Here is what I thought:
Sausages; Making the most of the Great British Sausage – by Rachel Green
I was lucky enough to take a copy of Rachel Green’s fabulous new cookbook with me to France for my holiday. It’s about the only time I get to get stuck into a good book. As soon as I started reading the book (after polishing off Barack Obama’s Dreams from my Father and before I tackled The Good Life) I knew I was in for a treat.
Rachel has a lovely way and has peppered the book with interesting sausage facts and unlike the harsh cookery books I used to read from my mother’s shelf when I was a boy this book is very accessible. Rachel manages to capture the versatility of the sausage with a great range of recipes.
Dishes range from Sausage, Bacon and Potato Frittata to Sausages with Gnocchi, Pumpkin and Sage Cream, and from Venison Sausages with Sour Cream and Cranberries to classics such as Toad in the Hole and The Perfect Sausage Sandwich.
Now I’m back in the UK with access to British sausages again I can’t wait to have a go at some of the recipes!
