There are hundreds of myths and
misunderstandings about food today. Whether you're wondering if certain
foods are good or bad for you, or just looking for a few interesting
facts about cooking, this book will surely keep you entertained and well
informed. * How it Works * This is a stunning book which I recommend
with great enthusiasm. Dorling Kindersley are a British publisher
specialising in visual reference books, and they have, yet again, shown
their mastery in translating complex information into gorgeous pictures.
And most importantly, retaining detail and accuracy of the subject,
without drift and dilution. This book provides lots of great science
about food and nutrition, presented beautifully. * Network Health Digest
