Camayot is a large original sausage from Balearic Islands that looks like a large blood sausage or blood head cheese. In traditional home production the sausage mix as stuffed into a large sack made from the skin that remains after trimming ham or shoulder. The skin is accordingly cut and sewn to make a large casing. After stuffing the neck is sewn tightly to prevent loss of meat juices during cooking.

"Spanish Sausages, Authentic Recipes and Instructions" fills this void and the readers will know not only what is a chorizo, longaniza, salchichón, fuet, morcilla, butifarra, salchicha, sobrasada, fiambre, androlla, butelo, morcón as well as many others, but also learn how to make each sausage. Of special interest is a collection of 200 recipes which were chosen for their originality and historical value. The book is a highly recommended addition to personal and professional culinary additions.
