Free Food Fridays: A Country-By-Country Guide to SAUSAGE + RECIPES!- ENDED

Sausage. Yum. No kidding— I have been dreaming of summer sausage for awhile now…wouldn’t it be nice to learn more about sausage, that ultimate sandwich filler and picnic-maker? There is nothing like a bit of sausage with some cheddar and crackers on a warm day with a breeze, whether you’re on a screen porch or out and about socializing with friends. Keep reading to learn more about the mouth-watering (seriously!) books you can win. More after the jump!

This awesome (all-inclusive) visual guide takes both foodies and seasoned experts on a country-by-country tour of sausage, describing and explaining the different types of sausage found in each region, how they’re made, how they’re used, and if they’re fresh, dried, semi-dried, part-cooked, or cooked. That’s a lot of content for one book, and boy is it thorough!

There’s more to sausage than bratwurst!

This book will show you everything you need to know, from the different types of sausage across the world to differences in flavor. You will also learn how to buy, store, and serve sausage. This is a perfect book for foodies, cooks, eaters, backyard BBQ masters…the list goes on! This one-stop reference even includes a section on how to make your own sausage.

This book contains:
•    330 sausage varieties featured with full-color photographs of each (gorgeous pics, I must say)
•    Step-by-step techniques demonstrating how to make your own sausage
•    48 classic recipes with notes about each variety

The practical step-by-step spreads in SAUSAGE demonstrate how to make sausages and salami and how to cure meat in your own kitchen. Each sausage is profiled with a photograph, and a small map shows the country and region of origin. SAUSAGE is truly a must-have guide for meat lovers of all types.

The Prize: Several copies of the book will be awarded to our readers. Get excited for this beautiful book!

    When I grew up, we had a local butcher that made his own sausages. I have never been able to find any that taste that good since. I would love to add this book to my collection. I would love to try making them myself

    I am of German heritage and have you ever known a German who did not like sausage. I was born and raisedon a farm and had all kinds of home made sausage when I was a kid. My favorite was the Blood Sausage that my mother used to make.

  • russ

    Many years ago we discovered by accident how useful pepperoni was in doctoring up bland backpacking recipes. In the subsequent years we have since been making new recipes using different dried sausages from all around the world. These are definitely the “wurst” dishes we ever eat!

  • Lora Kruger

  • GWEN WILLIS

    I LOVE COOKING, ESPECIALLY CREATING GREAT DISHES WITH “A LOTSA MEAT” OR OLD-FASHIONED COUNTRY RECIPES, I LOVE ALL TYPES OF SAUSAGE MEATS AND THE FLAVOR IT GIVES. IT AS GOOD WHOLESOME FOOD GROUP WHEN USING WITH SPICES, SEASONING OR JUST PLAIN OLD MAKING IT FROM “SCRATCH”. AND YOU DON’T NEED A SAUSAGE ONLY THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS AND KNOWLEDGE THAT MAY HAVE BEEN PASSED DOWN FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.
