Book of Sausages

Book of Sausages

Cor, am I excited today!

My work took me to Coleford in the Forest of Dean today and whilst I was there I decided to do some window shopping. In each town I go to, I always find myself visiting butchers, deli's and kitchen cookware shops etc
well today was no different.

I came across a butcher in Coleford which sold many things but the one thing that stuck out in his display was Chitterlings of which he cut and gave me to try cold, Yuk Yuk Yuk and I grimaced to the point that the rest of his customers were laughing!
I declined to buy any but I did not leave until I tried and then bought some of his best pork sausages and gammon.

From there I went to Monmouth in South Wales and this was purely a Christmas shopping exercise, there I came to a lovely looking butcher shop called " Le Gourmet" 9 Church Street, Monmouth Tel: 01600 716655.

It was his window display that drew me into the shop, in fact his display of Faggots, Faggots that were wrapped in streaky bacon instead of Caul, I must say and please please believe me these were the best Faggots I have ever had in my life!!!

It got better , a few hundred yards away I entered www.saltandpepper-ltd.co.uk a kitchen ware shop, where I found a book which I did not know existed called " Book of Sausages" by Antony and Araminta Hippisley Coxe. isbn 0-575-06633-4 priced �12.99. This book I have briefly looked at and it is refreshing to say the least, an English book on sausages must be rare?

I can't tell you any more as the wife as taken it away from me as I am to receive it from my children for Christmas, I'm afraid you will just have to buy your own.

If it's the same book as I have you will enjoy it immensely, I say that as I have the same title by the same writers but a different ISBN 0-575-04004-1.
Another good book I found is "Everything in the larder" by David Mabey this is a BBC book on how to prepare british provisionsISBN 0-563-36024-0 fist published 1990.

Over the weekend I was asked to dispatch some cockerels for a friend in a neighbouring village. Well as dusk approached I duly did the deed for my friend and on completion I was offered the obligatory Christmas drink for my work and whilst having this tipple the subject of coarse turned to food and sausages .

Before I could leave my host said wait don't go just yet I have to find something for you, she returned a few minutes later with the first edition of the above mentioned book, take this as a thank you she explained. WOW ! Christmas had indeed come early, what a treat.

Book Posting

Thanks a lot for offering to send me the book but I was really referring to posting the sausage recipes on the forum. However if you ever make it to Thailand you could always bring it with you, and we could meet up for a beer.

To All

I do not want to sound a WUSS but what is the law on copyright etc.

Copyright

Postby Parson Snows » Tue Dec 21, 2004 7:12 am

If they are stated as being "Traditional" then they cannot be copyrighted, that's how they became traditional in the first place by being passed down from person to person, generation to generation. As to most authors works if you do not intend claiming it as your own and give full credit (ie Author's Name, Tilte etc) where credit's due they are normally prepared to let you use up to 10 % of the content (this varies from author to author and publisher to publisher) though its use must be for teaching materials or non profit schemes and therefore CANNOT be sold in any form whatsoever. Other deals may be worked out it the publication is planned for future sale. Even the British Government are prepared to do this. I have several of their manuals, with recipes etc, and have been granted the 10 % use for my book. They did however state that this did not grant me exclusivity to these materials and that anyone else could apply to use them. In Thailand they will copy sections of a book but NOT the whole book, however, they will not copy any part of any government book.

I've got that book as well so if Fatman posts 10%, I'll post another 10% then all we have to do is find another 8 people on here with it. :lol:

Seriously though, it does say that the recipes are traditional and not the work of the author, it's the actual compilation and other wording that is, so I guess there shouldn't be a problem.

I have a friend who is a copyright expert, I can call them and find out if you want?

Spuddy

By all means check with your expert friend, but if it actually states traditional and not the work of the author then there is no problem. Does each recipe have an author/reference mentioned?. If so when you post it it is this reference that must be included/mentioned as opposed to "Everything in the Larder" which has a copyright on the complilation/layout etc.

Well Christmas came and surprise surprise I got a book from my children called " Book of Sausages" this book being the latest revision shows a great front cover picture .

Of coarse it is practically a word for word copy of the original , except this one is easier to read due to it's large print. I must emphasise this book is an excellent book to have if you are enthusiastic at all on this subject.

An easy to read format without all the technical jargon that bores most of us!

Fatman, is this book concerned with just Fresh Sausages or does it include Dry ones?

Does it explain the process of sausagemaking and include recipes, or is it the type of book that sort of discusses different types of sausages that are available?

Thanks for any help, I'd be really interested in this book if it turns out to be what I'm looking for.
