Polish White Liver Sausage (Polska biała kiszka pasztetowa)

A traditional Polish liver sausage that consists of liver, fat, bread and egg. The practice of extending the value of meat by adding dry rolls was very common not only in sausages, but in other meat dishes as well. They were added to ground meat to make a type of hamburger known as "Sznycel." Surprisignly, it worked very well and the taste was great. Dry rolls were also grated to obtain bread crumbs. This liver sausage was very popular in the central region known as Wielkopolska.

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.
