Aggarwal (experimental therapeutics, M.D. Anderson Cancer Ctr.), winner of a McCormick Spice Research Institute award from the American Society of Nutrition, combines his lifelong experience with spices with medical research to give detailed coverage of 50 spices and their curative qualities. Yost (The Complete Guide to Natural Cures: Effective Holistic Treatments for Everything from Allergies to Wrinkles) adds her expertise as well. For each of the 50 spices, there are historical facts, medicinal uses, and recipes, including traditional dishes like Chicken Oreganata and more inventive concoctions such as Mint and Pears Poached in Port and Star Anise. The book also includes spice combos and rubs, a spice buyer's resource guide, and a chart that lists healing spices for a variety of ailments from arthritis to ulcers. This text, accessible to lay readers, is well organized in an A-to-Z format covering over 150 health conditions. VERDICT Recommended for all public libraries and readers interested in alternative cures.
