Oriental Pork Sausage

Oriental pork sausage can be found in Asiatic stores. What makes it unusual is the addition of dill which is a wonderful herb usually added in Poland to a chicken soup or to salmon in England. Many sausages include parsley or cilantro, but this one shines because of the combination of dill and lemongrass. Lemongrass has a deep citrusy aroma that can typically be found in Thai cooking and other Asian cuisines. If you can't find lemongrass, you can substitute lemon or lime juice in its place. Just keep in mind that the citrus won't be able to fully substitute the flavor of lemongrass.

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.
