For Christmas, I am getting my mom and stepfather the meat grinder / sausage stuffer attachment for their kitchen aid mixer (which was last year's gift from me and my brother). I would like to also include a book on sausage making. I'm looking for something that covers the basics, with techniques and a few simple recipes.
I wouldn't classify either of them as "foodies", but they are not beginners or clueless either. My stepfather owns a smoker and has been cranking out some semi-decent BBQ recently. My mom is an above-average home cook.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
