Product Description

Review

This one's an encyclopedia. It's a good resource for recipes on the spot but may be overwhelming if youre starting out. I like to have it on the shelf in case I'm looking to expand ideas but its recipes are so literal (an advantage to many) that I prefer to use this to brainstorm my own ideas from rather than to use it each piece. This could apply to all levels of home preservers but I like it best as an on-demand reference as opposed to a manual. Dehydrating is one of the most effective ways to preserve food for maximun nutrition at a very low cost. The Dehydrator Bible recognizes that cooking is a blend of science and art. Co-authors Jennifer MacKenize, Jay Nutt and Don Mercer combined their professional expertise to take the guesswork out of drying a variety of foods, and sharing successful techniques and recipes.

About the Author

The « Dehydrator Bible» is really a misnomer, as some buyers have pointed out, because it is not a guide on dehydrating foods, which requires a long process of learning, namely by trial and error. This book does not help you to overcome the initial mistakes and pitfalls of a novice: even the basic techniques are not dealt with in detail for those, like me, who bought the book as a manual (or «bible», if you like) on the subject.
The accent is definitely on the 400 recipes it boasts of, in which I was not the least interested. So if you are looking for a initiation on this subject, buy instead Mary Bell's Dehydrator Cookbook, which is a much better buy, although a little bit outdated.

This book is more about recipe's than dehydrating. Perhaps this is my fault as I am upping my raw food diet and this book does not fit my needs as it is mostly using dehydrated foods and using them in cooked dishes.

there are too many recipes in this book and not enough information on the actual subject of the dehydration of foods. The foods listed and described (poorly) for dehydrating are selective and very restricted. The extrapolation, of the few details that are given, for seemingly similar items just do not work. My wife and I would NOT recommend this book for those beginning, or seeking information, on dehydrating foods. We regret buying it. To call it a 'bible' is a misnomer.

... But sometimes, the way the book is set out, makes it hard to find in a hurry. The best way to use this book is to read the chapters first, then start dipping in to the recipes, referring back to the chapters where necessary, which can mean up to five pages book-marked at once when making one recipe up!

Having said that, the book is comprehensive, and is a useful tool for the new dehydrator user.

I am going to find this book most helpful, while I learn all about my new food hydrator.
At present I am only using it for my dog :) I am making all his treats, since the scare on Chinese imports.
The book has a lot of choice in recipes, I look forward to having a go :)

when i bought my dehydrator it came with minimal instructions so this book has been fabulous - use it to get the best from your appliance. Lots of good recipes and sound advice. Couldnot do without this book. Very useful for using all your excess fruit and veg from the garden and when stuff is cheap to buy.

This book did not clearly state that you needed to create a store cupboard of dried foods and then use them in their recipes. I returned this book as it was not what I was after.

it dosnt interest me very much because im not happy with the dehydrator i purchased. I also waited a long time for delivery. If it had come soon after I received the dehydrator, I would have been more into it.
