NICE TO HAVE BOOK: Ingredients
This is a book ("pictionary") which I recommend everyone who are interested in food.
It has pictures and short description of most of ingredients. It is a wonderful tool to learn about food.
Author: Loukie Werle and Jill Cox
I believe it is available in different languages. I have one in English and one in Norwegian.
Tips: Ark.no has both Norwegian and English!!!!
