Although it's not readily apparent, this is actually a new edition (only very slightly revised) of Aidells and Kelly's Hot Links and Country Flavors (o.p.). However, it remains an excellent book Aidells and Kelly are known for mouthwatering recipes and entertaining (The Complete Meat Cookbook), and libraries whose original copies have aged badly, or that missed it the first time around, will want to add this. In addition, Aidells's delicious sausages are now far more widely available, in gourmet and other specialty markets, than they were when the book was originally published, so there should be new interest from their fans as well.

Bruce Aidells' Complete Sausage Book shows how much flavor and excitement a good cook can extract from a single, somewhat common ingredient. Sausages came about to make palatable those edible but less choice scraps and leftovers from the butchering process. Over time sausages have become national symbols: Poland's kielbasa, Germany's wursts, and America's hot dog. Along with coauthor Denis Kelly, Aidells inventories the world of sausages, including Asian varieties as well as more familiar European and American types. In addition to instructions for making these sausages, he offers recipes that feature sausages, from breakfast dishes through hearty stews such as Polish bigos and the noteworthy Pennsylvania Dutch apple and sausage stew, Schnitz und Knepp. Mark KnoblauchCopyright © American Library Association.
