This is a book in the finest tradition of narrative recipe writing. It's a heavenly mix of whimsy, life and science, grounded in solid technique and blissful flavour.
A spicy educational treat to be savoured: a delight.
A revelation and education for your taste buds, gut bugs, and dinner table conversation.
This is an extraordinary fusion of science, literature, medicine and cookery. We've never read anything quite like it - a book that will transform your understanding of what you eat and how it makes you feel. The recipes work, are delicious and many are utterly new and fresh. A perfect offering.
I'm a big fan of Saliha - her recipes are always smash hits and I love how she writes and her way of weaving family memories, food history and kitchen storytelling in with medical evidence and the latest research. This is a great book for anyone who wants to cook a very tasty supper that hits the spot and also get to know their bodies, moods and emotions better. Foodology is both fascinating and full of delicious meals to enjoy cooking.
What we have here is the passion of an incredible cook, coupled with the knowledge of someone who has studied intensively the effects of food on our health. This is not a diet book, but it is packed full of very useful, often incredible, and even fun topics, as well as super yummy recipes, as you would expect from a MasterChef champion. I so enjoyed this book, it does so much, it will let you cook recipes like a top chef and at the same time give you the scientific foresight of a doctor.
