Stadtwurst is a fine grind German sausage, but there are also coarse grind Stadtwurst sausages, for example Nürnberger Stadtwurst or Schlesische. Although Stadtwurst translates into City Sausage this reasoning cannot be universally applied as there are different meat and spice combinations in different regions of the country. The common denominator is the diameter of the sausage, its ring shape, materials: pork or pork and beef and the heating process. The sausage is usually hot smoked and boiled in water.

Spanish Sausages

There is a negligible amount of information on Spanish sausages in English, and even the Spanish books offer only a few recipes with general information, very skimpy instructions and hardly any explanations. "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.
