This is a book of two halves. The Ingredients Book arms you with everything you need to know about the basic building blocks of any recipe. LEON chooses its ingredients above all for their flavor and healthiness but also with a view to the world we live in, so that such sharkinfested waters as sustainable fish are tackled and easy to navigate. LEONs top 250 fruits, vegetables, fish, meats, dairy and store cupboard ingredients are all given their own entries. Nutrition, a bit of history, flavor and the best way to get the most out of them are all covered, seasoned with a fair amount of random miscellany.
