"I have always considered positive words to be food for the soul, now even more so. In a world of fast and pre-packaged foods, wholesome, unadulterated ingredients often leave novice cooks stumped. W is for Walnut makes it unpretentious and easy. What to do with that gorgeous eggplant? Stir fry with garlic. And that scarlet winter beauty the blood orange? Bake it on fish. This gem of a book reveals that what is created in the kitchen is limited only by your imagination. There aren't 20 complex steps to follow, just a wholesome mental image to get your creative juices and tastebuds flowing. In the end you learn that when using food from the precious soil that the Earth gives us, it is nearly impossible to go wrong.
I also appreciated the comment about these books being useful for those who are deaf. As a former ESL instructor, I see much value in the pictureless book series. Imagine the fun that could be had with W is for Walnut, English Language Learners, and a bag of farmer's market bounty. Buen Provecho!" -E.M. Reeves
