Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really like vinegar and wanted to find a book that would tell me a bit about its history as well as how to cook with it, and I've been very pleased with this work. The author starts by defining vinegar and then discusses its discovery and uses in various parts of the world. After a chapter on the various types of vinegars, there is a chapter on vinegar and health, including old wives' tales as well as scientific research. Practical uses for vinegar are given, and many recipes. The book concludes with information on resources -- vinegar museums, websites, and retail suppliers for vinegar or vinegar-making needs; references; and an index.
I thought this was quite well done. I've learned a lot and have been happy with the recipes I've tried so far. Very nice.
