As if that weren’t enough, there’s also a chapter on making specially flavored ice cubes and a guide to creating your own personalized flavored waters. Lovely color photos throughout amply demonstrate that water doesn’t have to be boring anymore.

    Very refreshing

    I bought this book because the cover intrigued me. Who could believe water could be presented so beautifully? The book includes food pairings and recipes for elegant ice cubes. You won't have a problem drinking 8 glasses of water when you read this book.
