Changed the way I see food,
This review is from: Fat: An Appreciation of a Misunderstood Ingredient, with Recipes (Hardcover)Jennifer McLagan has put me back in touch with enjoying and appreciating food. She's full of well-researched calm common sense - something sorely lacking in the hysterial "obesity epidemic" headlines that seem to scold us like clueless, greedy children. Instead of alientating us from food, she celebrates the goodness, history, pleasure and benefits of eating wonderful ingredients.
Fat is a welcome return to the ingrained wisdom we used to have about the food we ate before over-processing and misinformation made eating and cooking full of guilt and consequence.
Her recipes are absolutely delish, well laid out and easy to follow. She's totally changed my relationship with food and she's made me a much better cook. Fat is a book I'm constantly going back to not only for the recipes, but also for reassuring sanity checks - from a person who truly knows - and refreshingly likes - food.
