Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter

by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough


This Easter, why stick to the same boring ham recipe you've used year after year? Instead, shake things up and take a mouth-watering tour of the wonderful world of ham in Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough's Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter. Weinstein and Scarbrough leave no part of the world unexplored, featuring ham recipes from the Philippines to Spain, the Caribbean to the American South, and even their own home corner of rural Connecticut (where they buy and help raise a hog of their own). Gifted storytellers and talented cooks, the pair offers hilarious stories as they pig out on a hundred delicious recipes.

This luscious volume covers four types of ham: Fresh Ham, including recipes for a Ham Tagine and Steamed Ham Buns; Dry-Cured Ham in the Old World, with recipes for Chilled Honeydew Soup with Frizzled Ham and Prosciutto-Wrapped Meatloaf in a Vinegary Tomato Sauce, as well as a menu for A European Ham Party; Dry-Cured Ham in the New World, offering Jerk-Style Country Ham and Pineapple Tamales and a Glazed and Roasted Country Ham; and Wet-Cured Ham, featuring an Iberian-Inspired Frittata and an over-the-top Mac and Ham and Cheese.

With incredible photography; invaluable information about buying, preparing, and serving ham; and dozens of globe-trotting recipes, Ham: An Obsession with the Hindquarter is the only guide you'll ever need to this luscious, versatile delicacy.
