Tim Hayward's Food DIY - the first comprehensive manual for the DIY
cook. Over recent years, across much of the world, people have
started rejecting shop bought food and are getting into making it
themselves. The DIY food movement is spreading. But why DIY?
Because it's fun, an adventure, thrifty, a great way to get your
hands gloriously dirty, and because at a time when skills like
baking, preserving and curing are in danger of being lost forever,
it's more important than ever to learn how things work. Most
importantly though, when you do it yourself you can make sure that
all the food you eat is absolutely delicious. In Food DIY, Tim
Hayward, editor of influential food magazine Fire & Knives and
enthusiastic DIYer, will show you: - How to make your own butter
and cheese, sloe gin, suet pudding and potted lobster. - How to
smoke, and cure fish and meats, air-dry bresaola and boerwoers, as
well as pickle fish, game and vegetables. - He'll explain the
mysteries of terrines and faggots, bread and buns, as well how to
spit-roast a whole lamb, make a clam bake in a wheelbarrow, smoke a
salmon in a gym locker and deep fry a turkey outdoors. - He'll
teach you how to make your own takeaway: from delicious Peking duck
and fried chicken to doner kebab and your morning cappuccino. Food
DIY is the essential modern urban cook's manual. 'The perfect guide
to everything from salt beef to gravadlax, through jerkey, pickles
and sloe gin' Shortlist 'If you fantasise over the perfect pork pie
with a proper jelly layer and cut into each deli-bought version
only to be disappointed, here is the answer' Independent 'If you
like Cooked, and even if you didn't, check out Tim Hayward's new
book, which promises to be a DIY classic' Michael Pollan 'As 'Urban
Food DIY-er' Tim Hayward proves with his new book, making your own
everything is much easier than you might think and a whole lot of
fun ...excellent inspiration for anyone who cherishes the art of
producing good food' Psychologies Tim Hayward is a food writer and
