Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Does the mention of 40-Clove Garlic Chicken make your mouth water? Are you interested in learning about the history and healing powers of garlic? Perhaps you'd like to know how to throw a garlic-tasting party? If the answer to these questions is yes, then natural foods author Renoux (The Arrowhead Mills Cookbook) has written the book for you. Much more than a cookbook, this covers the history, varieties, and properties of one of the most popular kitchen ingredients. In fact, only about one quarter of the text is recipes, so those looking strictly for new ways to use the pungent herb might be disappointed. The recipes included are mostly easy-to-prepare standards, although often with a twist from a unique ingredient or two. An example of this would be tabbouleh made with Quinoa rather than the usual Bulgur wheat. All recipes emphasize healthful, fresh ingredients and, of course, lots of garlic. Overall, an interesting treatise on an item most of us use but probably know little about; purchase for larger cookery collections or where there is interest.-Susan Hurst, Miami Univ. of Ohio Libs., Oxford Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
