  • Breads, pastas, and other grain-based foods

A generous array of sidebar features throughout the book offers quick tips on food purchases, as well as " Fast Facts " and advice on preparation, serving, and dining. For example, immediately following the "al dente" entry in reference to cooking pasta, readers will find this sidebar:
