I teach a Culinary Arts class at a vocational high school and I would like to implement some sausage making into the curriculum. I brushed on this in college and I am somewhat knowlegable about it. Does anybody have any good books, magazines, or sites that are both informational to students and offer a wide variety of sausages? Help?

Bruce Aidells, the San Francisco-area legendary sausage maker, has a great book floating around out there. His products are also available commercially, so you can compare your execution of his recipes to the 'real deal'.

I have tried a couple of recipes for pate and rillettes in Jane Grigson's "The Art of Making Sausages, Pates and Other Charcuterie". I don't know if it's in print any more, but here's the ISBN number:394-73252-9. The publication date is 1985.

Good luck! I hope it's less unsightly than passing legislation.... ;)

Here's one of the threads on eGullet in which one of the members discusses his foray into sausage making and smoking. You'll probably enjoy reading it. Search for other posts by him, and you'll get a wealth of information.

Great Sausage Recipes by Rytek Kutas.

It's an old book which teaches a lot about sausage making. Lots of recipes and illustrations.

Thanks,
Over the past few years of moving, I had miss-placed a great book of sausage-making from various countries and had a ton of recipes in it. I am having trouble finding it. I wanted to purchase a couple of pork shoulders, grind em' up and start filling some casings! Thanks for the author/book titles it is a big help in finding a replacement.

Hey Guys,
Thanks for the sites! Those two look pretty resourceful for my students to use. I'm going to develop a work sheet with hyperlinks as part of their research and I'll stuff those in it. Thanks so much.
