Very impressive accomplishment for a first time author who is not a chef. Crandall was driven to reclaim his own health and radically cahnged his diet and was able to get off his medications. Excellent color photographs for each recipe, with a fairly complex ethnic scope. The recipes I've tried were all good though some of the language was a little strange--you don't really "brew" soup. Very pleased with the purchase!
