It is no longer a surprise that everyone eats – and loves – bacon, right? So why wouldn’t we love to own books about bacon? Even though we all know how to use bacon in our diet, there is definitely enough place for some more...

Meindertsma spent three years researching for this book and tracked every pig part on its way through factories and into products that you and I use every day.
