I learned some things from this fun little book. Lushly illustrated, full of what I think of as "sound bites" even though they are text. Lots of delicious-looking recipes and plenty of interesting facts. Truth compels me to point out some inconsistencies- where one recipe states categorically "you wouldn't want high fructose corn syrup in your breakfast, would you?" another calls for a two liter bottle of Dr. Pepper.Still, a fun book.
