Americans have fallen in love with yogurt, thanks to its creamy texture, tangy flavor, and health-promoting probiotic cultures. In Yogurt, a fresh and modern full-color cookbook, author Janet Fletcher demonstrates the versatility of this dairy superstar in more than fifty recipes for appetizers, salads, soups, beverages, and desserts. Fromroasted tomato bruschetta with yogurt cheese tomeatballs in a warm yogurt sauce to a golden yogurt cake, these recipes showcase yogurt in dishes both rustic and sophisticated. Drawing inspiration from the culinary traditions of Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Iran, India, and beyond, this useful handbook includes a guide to purchasing yogurt (all of the recipes work with quality store-bought brands), advice on choosing a yogurt maker, and easy methods for making yogurt, Greek yogurt, and yogurt cheese at home.
My thoughts: I enjoy making my own yogurt, so I was thrilled to get this cookbook in the mail! While some of the recipes are fairly simple (fruit smoothies, like those I grew up eith), there are also a lot of fun and inventive recipes that I would of never thought of. I especially like how the recipes incorporate a lot of herbs and vegetables that one can either easily grow or find at a local farmers market. That is always a huge plus in my book! :-)
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
