What do you get when you pair a scientist and a chef?,
This review is from: Cool Cuisine: Taking The Bite Out of Global Warming (Paperback)
What do you get when you pair a scientist and a chef? You get a great book, and that's no joke!
This book's many recipes are accompanied by just as many charts and graphs detailing the science and statistics of our culture's food habits. But don't get me wrong, it's not a boring textbook nor an end-of-the world screed. It's an entirely engaging read that's just as personable and positive as it is informative and eye-opening. And it's not all data; it's also well designed, with lots of beautiful color photos and large text that's easy to read.
Lots of practical sense in this book, and I learned a ton about how our food choices affect the environment. My wife has already given a few copies as gifts.
