A Spoonful Of Ginger
By Nina Simons. 8"x 9.5", 300 pages, hardcover. Based on the Asian philosophy of food as health-giving. The 200 delectable recipes not only taste superb but also have specific healing properties according to the accumulated wisdom of TCM. The emphasis is on balance: eating in harmony with the season; countering yin (or cooling) foods with yang (or hot) foods and neutralizers like rice and noodles.
