Whole Foods Companion

A Guide For Adventurous Cooks, Curious Shoppers, and Lovers of Natural Foods

Overview

From the publisher

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
  • herbs, spices, and other foods

Each entry includes nutritional value, general information, buying tips, culinary uses, and, when appropriate, health benefits, lore and legend, byproducts, 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.
