New Book Coming Out
« on: April 04, 2011, 09:59:09 AM »
We were at a beer dinner last week that paired the food with Jolly Pumpkin beers, but that is not the reason for this.

The retaraunt's owner is Chef Brian Polcyn, who co-wrote this book.

He said he has a new book coming out soon titled "Salumi".  Italian sausage, should be a good book.

Ruhlman writes a lot about Polcyn in "The Soul of a Chef" which, along with the other two books in the series, is a fantastic read. I read "The Making of a Chef" on a flight to a vacation and once I finished bought the other two and read them by the time I got back.

From what I gather, they have remained friends since the "Soul of a Chef".  Ruhlman was the co-author of "Charcuterie", and I expect he is doing "Salumi" with Polcyn.

Ruhlman was at the local place signing "Charcuterie" alongside Polcyn when it came out.  Maybe I will get there for that event this time.   Big doings in our little village.
