Whole Foods Companion - Book by Dianne Onstad

$ 30.00 $ 40.00


What if you could have information about more than 400 foods at your fingertips? You can find it all in the new edition of Whole Foods Companion.

Originally published in 1996, Whole Foods Companion has become the definitive resource guide to the rapidly expanding world of whole foods. This revised and expanded edition updates key nutritional information in six categories:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Grains
  • Legumes
  • Nuts, seeds, and oils
  • Herb, spices, and other foods.

Each entry includes nutritional value, general information, buying tips, culinary uses, and, when appropriate, health benefits, lore and legend, by-products, and descriptions of the more popular varieties.

In the face of staggering confusion and conflicting claims about the nutritional value of different foods and herbs, this book is a detailed and invaluable guide to natural foods. It is a perfect companion to cookbooks and should be required reading for chefs everywhere. No mere collection of dry nutritional information, Whole Foods Companion also explains the origins and naming of different foods and relays some of the legends and traditions with which they have been associated.
