This extensive guide covers more than 1,000 ingredients, including - 7 70 different kinds of vegetables 7 63 varieties of fruits 7 37 types of meat 7 62 species of fish 7 34 different cereals and grains 7 47 herbs, spices and condiments 7 30 kinds of cheese and milk products 7 Varieties of nuts and seeds, mushrooms, seaweed, sugars, fat and oils, and coffee and tea. In large part, the explaining is done with pictures, over 1,200 of them. The state-of-the-art computer images are so clear and richly colored, you'll want to eat the food right off the page. And because you just have to see how some things are done, like cutting a chicken into serving pieces, basic techniques are clearly illustrated with original step-by-step photographs. This unique book doesn't ignore health benefits either. All the entries include nutritional highlights. A glossary of terms along with a comprehensive index of the technical and most commonly known names for each entry is provided at the end of the book. Plus, while this is an encyclopedia, not a cookbook, serving ideas and traditional recipes using selected ingredients are featured.
