Review by Library Journal Reviews

Morell (Nourishing Traditions) and Daniel (The Whole Soy Story) are both affiliated with the controversial Weston A. Price Foundation, which advocates for what they call a "traditional diet," one that disagrees with popular nutritional theories about the consumption of certain fats, unpasteurized milk, and the benefits of a vegetarian or vegan diet. This book focuses on broth and includes coverage of the folklore and history of broth and broth making. There are several chapters dedicated to the authors' beliefs about the medicinal benefits of broth for various ailments and conditions. Whether readers agree with the authors' opinions or not, the book's diverse dishes, broth-making tips, and recipes for soups, gravies, and sauces that incorporate broth are useful and appealing. VERDICT While the content is narrow and the authors have their detractors, there is value in the content. The text provides captivating background information about a seemingly simple staple of cooking and the recipes are accessible.—Ann Wilberton, Pace Univ., New York [Page 123]. (c) Copyright 2014.
