Maynard: Adventures of a Bacon Curer

Maynard Davies, the last of the apprentice bacon curers, tells his intriguing story in his own distinctive style.

Always one to turn a challenge into an opportunity, Maynard took pleasure in learning the skills of the old master curers of the Black Country and he shares with the reader the secrets of top quality bacon, learnt over a lifetime: the methods, recipes, smoking and curing. His passion for, as he puts it, 'good food for good people', is his motivation - made by experts, using the best ingredients, and cutting no corners.

Funny, wise and very human, Maynard's unsentimental tale will remind readers that old fashioned virtues of pride in one's profession, hard work, an open mind and a lot of optimism go along way.

Press reviews

Reviewed by Liz Shankland of Western Mail in November 2004

'His tales have an appeal which will reach far more people than those making a living out of meat. Adventures of a Bacon Curer is a good, honest read, written by what appears to be a good, honest man. It’s a life story and recipe book in one, and certainly gives food for thought.'
