A Charcuterie Diary  by P.J. Booth.

P.J. Booth's message is: Do not be afraid of charcuterie. It's a technique for meat preservation, the origins of which are lost in time. If people wearing leather sandals & without electricity can do it, then so can you! With over 75,000 words in more than 350 pages, this book is simply & beautifully designed, with all you need to know to understand charcuterie & become someone who the author describes as a “torchbearer of the traditions”.


This book took out the 2018 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards Special Award of the Jury (Category A06). The Gourmand Awards celebrate the most accomplished & influential culinary writers from countries across the globe. 

The Gourmand Awards are open to all, big or small, print or digital, for sale or for free, with or without ISBN, trade or self published, private or public, in any language. There is no comparable international cultural event in the world.
