An inadequacy of cookbooks

I had thought I owned quite a decent range of cookbooks these days, but today, they have failed me. As far as I can tell, i do not have single cookbook which suggests ways to cook pork belly. As I kept flipping through book after book, I eventually recalled that pork belly is nigh impossible to find in the US. None of my NA cookbooks had recipes, but I thought surely, surely, the British ones will. But no.

I am not lacking in ways to cook the meat: various brochures from Olive and the packaging of the meat itself offer up suggestions. There's always the whole wide internet. Still, I am feeling as if my cookbook collection isn't quite up to snuff today.

Mmmm, pork belly. I used to be able to get a big slab from Asda for a fiver...

The other pork belly recipe we tried was this one from The F Word, which was similarly delicious. I used to have the original recipe off the website, but I appear to have lost it somewhere along the line. I'm sure you can find it online if this version doesn't do the job.
