Overview

Whether they are crushed, chopped, toasted, roasted, or fried, nuts add a delicious dimension to your cooking. Delicious, satisfying, and rich in protein, fiber, and vitamins, nuts just might be nature’s perfect ingredient. Award-winning cookbook authors Linda and Fred Griffith have traveled the world collecting recipes that highlight the delights of cooking with nuts, and researching the history and cultures that surround them.

This collection of more than 180 nutritious, flavorful, and satisfying recipes covers all courses and ranges from casual to sophisticated.

Supplemented by fascinating profiles of the people who harvest the nuts we eat and love—-in the United States, Europe, India, and elsewhere—-this is a delightful, well-researched book for home cooks and nut lovers everywhere.
