The Southern Foodie's Guide to the Pig
How to Select, Prepare, Cook and Enjoy Everything but the Oink
By Christ Chamberlain 

From snout to tail, you're about to get a deluxe tour of the South's most versatile and delicious farm animal. While pork may be having "a moment" in kitchens across the country, the South has long been a storied hug for savoring pig in all its incarnations. From chops to loins, belly to bacon and every complementary side dish in between, Christ Chamberlain's culinary curiosity has once again yielded the ultimate field guide to the South's storied gastronomic landscape. Come along as he explores the region's best sources of pork perfection - at eateries such as The Shed in Ocean Springs, Mississippi; NoFo @ The Pig in Raleigh, North Carolina; and Tanglewood Ordinary in Maidens, Virginia. The Southern Foodie's Guide to the Pig dishes up both generations - old and newfangled recipes weaving together a story of the South's longstanding love affair with pork and those well loved accompaniments that complete the meal. State by state you'll uncover the secrets of the region's best chefs, pit masters and hog farmers.
