"Ruby red pomegranate seeds that crunch and pop when you bite into them, deep purple eggplant that becomes a silken purée spiked with garlic, brilliant orange squashes and pumpkins roasted until tender and paired with sage, and a rainbow of chiles with nuts and seeds in a rich mole sauce . . . the landscape of healthy cooking practically vibrates with the colors, textures, and aromas of foods we've adapted to our daily lives."

I have not used this book yet, but the recipes look good.
I always enjoy owning books from The Culinary Institute of America because I am a Culinary student.
