I found this hardcover on the book-swap shelf in the Tyngsboro MA post office lobby while dropping off some books of my own. It features delectable pork-based recipes, from the fairly simple - Bubble and Squeak with Dry-cured Bacon, for example - to more unexpected ones, such as Goose Fat Potted Pork. [This is something along the lines of the French-Canadian cretons.] I appreciated such recipes as the eight-hour roasted shoulder of pork, having enjoyed an amazingly delicious slow-cooked pork shoulder at a wine dinner at the Bedford Village Inn; I suspect that the home-made version wouldn't be quite as good, but it's still worth the effort.

And the recipe that really caught my attention: Confit of Pork Belly! I'm fond of other confit recipes, usually of duck or goose (though I did do a confit of turkey a few times), and the tender slow-cooked meat imbued with the cooking fat and herbs is soooo good! But I hadn't thought of trying it with pork belly, and now I'm wondering if that's how a favorite local restaurant prepared theirs...
