Why we chose this book
This book has highly regarded content and fascinating photos, so I had to take a look. Beyond the cultural and historical content, the author takes us through the preparation and storage options that increase or destroy nutrients in the various foods—one method is not recommended for all. The course reviewers loved the book.
