Practical Food Smoking : A Comprehensive Guide Paperback
by Kate Walker
Illustrated by Doreen Shaw
The craft of smoking food was once commonly practised in order to preserve food-stuffs and enhance flavour, but the advent of the cold-store, the fridge and chemical food preservatives saw the decline of the practice.
However, as consumer demand for wholesome produce increases, the interest in food smoking is becoming greater.
Kate Walker, a professional food smoker has written a practical guide of value to home-smokers and commercial concerns alike which covers every aspect of the art and craft.
The book covers: the history of smoking, the selection of raw materials, brining, the practice of smoking at home and for the business concern, smoke ovens and other equipment, setting up a smoking business, finance, marketing, hygiene and environmental matters, packaging and labelling and do's and don'ts.
