Yogurt: Sweet and Savory Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner by Janet Fletcher shares many healthy and delicious recipes that use yogurt. These days yogurt is all the craze. Many of us enjoy yogurt as a quick snack, as well as a healthier substitute for not so healthy ingredients like sour cream or mayonnaise. Making Yogurt at Home is the first chapter of the book, where Janet gives tips and recipes on how to make different types of yogurt including Greek yogurt. The other chapters are broken down by recipes for breakfast, appetizers & salads, soups, mostly meat, vegetables & grains, desserts, and beverages.
I found this cookbook to be intriguing and enjoyed that the book starts with a little history and science about yogurt. There are many colorful pictures throughout the book with pages that are non-glossy. the Alsatian Pizza with Onions & Pancetta on p. 91 has me drooling as well as the Yogurt Parfait with Cinnamon-Apples Compote & Granola on p. 111. If I’m honest about whether or not I would use this cookbook regularly, I think I would have to say it would not be a go-to book for me. Many of the ingredients are not ones I use a regular basis (for example; dukka p. 85, lamb p. 74). I would recommend this cookbook to those folks who are interested in trying new ingredients and know there way around the kitchen.
I am thankful for Blogging for Books who sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
