Book Review: The Wurst of Lucky Peach: A Treasury of Encased Meat

Hello again, everyone. Tonight finds us with a new book and this time The Wurst of Lucky Peach: A Treasury of Encased Meat, by Chris Ying and the editors of Lucky Peach (Clarkson Potter, $24.99 (240 pages) ISBN 978-0-8041-8777-0).

This book, the much-anticipated follow-up to last year’s Lucky Peach Presents 101 Easy Asian Recipes. And this book didn’t disappoint in it’s cheeky, entertaining, and focused view at American regionalism as defined by everyone’s favorite food, meat in case form.

This book focuses on everything from sausage, to the expected N.Y.C. “dirty water dogs” and iconic Chicago-style dogs,  even corndogs, oddities such as opka hesip, a Chinese sausage composed of lamb offal and rice stuffed into a sheep’s lung, German weiswurst, and  Mexican chorizo, mortadella, boudi, or merguez.

This book has a little of everything to offer carnivores of all shapes and sizes!
