Ever fancied curing your own meat or smoking your own fish? The new River Cottage Handbook will show you how…

Those looking for new ways to jazz up their meat and fish dishes this year will be pleased to hear that a brand new River Cottage Handbook offers a guide to doing just that, with a plethora of smoking and curing advice from Stephen Lamb – Hugh’s very own ‘go-to guy for all things salty and smoky’. Stephen has been involved with River Cottage since the very beginning, hosting events, making regular appearances on the show and teaching at the cookery school, where he specialises in curing and smoking meat – a useful preserving method that we Brits seem to have neglected in recent years.

In Curing & Smoking River Cottage Handbook No.13, Stephen sets out to revive this useful practice, providing mouth-watering recipes and step-by-step guidance on how to cure and smoke your own food, showing readers that everyone, whether living on a country farm, or in an urban environment, can easily preserve fresh produce. If you’ve ever wanted to make your own chorizo sausage, or wondered how to hot-smoke a salmon fillet, then this book is definitely worth a buy.
