Pig: A Passion for Pork
by Johnnie Mountain

My friend/bromance Jeff turned me onto this amazing cookbook. What I love so much about the recipes (besides being brilliantly delicious) is they are presented in a very open-ended manner. Only basic pairing and methods are provided, leaving you to sub this or that, or adapt a step to your style of cooking.

The braised ham hock has been my favorite dish, but Johnnie's technique for pork belly crackling has absolutely no superior.
