Amazon Reviewers Say:

F. L. Gold, Ph.D.: I’m one of those people who feels totally lame in the kitchen … Having tasted her food in a variety of ways in the past, in a restaurant setting, at home after ordering her products, I can’t wait to start putting her ideas into use. Bring on the cook books!
