Review:

There are hundreds of myths and misunderstandings about food today. Whether you're wondering if certain foods are good or bad for you, or just looking for a few interesting facts about cooking, this book will surely keep you entertained and well informed. (How it Works)

This is a stunning book which I recommend with great enthusiasm. Dorling Kindersley are a British publisher specialising in visual reference books, and they have, yet again, shown their mastery in translating complex information into gorgeous pictures. And most importantly, retaining detail and accuracy of the subject, without drift and dilution. This book provides lots of great science about food and nutrition, presented beautifully. (Network Health Digest)
