Yogurt: Sweet and Savory Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Reviews

    Yogurt is one of my absolute favorite ingredients. Living in a dorm, it's a fast go-to food to always keep on hand, and it's something familiar to me as I grew up eating Greek yogurt and honey. When I saw that this book used yogurt in every recipe for both sweet and savory, I couldn't resist. And I'm glad I didn't; this is a really useful collection of dishes.It starts off with a really interesting pre-recipe introduction section that includes how to pick (and separate) the different kinds of yogurt, a brief history of the ingredient, the science behind it, as well as the health benefits of consuming yogurt. There's also a really neat guide on how to make your own yogurt with clear, step-by-step instructions on how to do so. There's also a really handy list of what fruits are readily available in what month, so that you can easily pair fruit with your yogurt at anytime of the year. At the end of the book, there's also a list of references and bibliographies for those who are interested in finding out more.The recipes in this book are sorted by course, complete with a chapter for beverages which is something that I hadn't even thought of. I thought that was a really nice addition to the collection. There's a really nice mix of sweet and savory recipes which is good, because even though I love yogurt based sauces and the like, I don't usually think of yogurt as a savory ingredient. This book is very vegetarian friendly, but there are also dishes for meat eaters, which was also a happy surprise. The author offers good tips for how to substitute and change recipes according to availability and tastes. There's a lot of international dishes here which works well to show just how versatile of an ingredient yogurt is. The photographs that are included are very pretty and professional, but I wish there were more pictures of the finished dishes as opposed to aesthetically pleasing but mostly artsy photographs. I like being able to see how on par I am when I complete a recipe. Some of the recipes that I'm most excited to cook in my own kitchen include Lamb Meatballs in Warm Yogurt Sauce with Sizzling Red Pepper Butter, Grilled Swordfish with Yogurt Tahini Sauce and Sumac, and Indian Yogurt Pudding with Saffron, Cardamom, and Toasted Nuts. I recommend this to those who want international flair brought to their yogurt dining experience, as well as those in mixed vegetarian-meat eating house holds. This book is good for beginners and seasoned cooks alike.I received this book in exchange for my honest review. This review can also be found on my blog, Bitches n Prose.

    Yogurt: Sweet and Savory Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner is an incredible book that is so much more than recipes. Starting with description of history and trajectory of yogurt, it includes tons of health benefits and many many possibilities that could be made from it. Perfect for clean eating, vegetarians and anyone overall, this recipe book really takes the subject of yogurt serious. One of the interesting things that I have found about this is that the texture of yogurt itself could make the dish very different. Using it for breakfast, lunch, and YES dinner is incredible. The illustrations are truly work of art. Beautiful piece to have at home and make great recipes for the whole family.

    Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This comprehensive book offers an excellent mélange of history, health benefits, tips and tricks in making and uses of yogurt in often unexpected ways and of course delicious recipes. The author shows many interesting ways how yogurt can easily be incorporated into all our daily meals; from breakfast to supper and from soups to desserts. Greek cuisine for example pairs yogurt with lamb, while it is also the creamy component of many vegetarian dishes in the Indian food culture. In addition to many intriguing recipes, much detail is given to their preparation as well as individual ingredients e.g. candied walnuts, flatbread, ghee… This volume provides a wealth of inspiration and it expands our culinary horizon with exciting, delicious and healthy new dishes. I am certain that it will soon become a favorite cooking companion for all foodies as well as newbies.

    This is a simple yet delightful cookbook featuring the popular food: yogurt! Contained within this book are many recipes using this healthy and tasty product. Try roasted tomato bruschetta with yogurt cheese, or meatballs in a warm yogurt sauce or perhaps golden yogurt cake! The recipes range from sauces to dips to desserts!I am an experienced cook and could live on yogurt and I personally was pleased with this book which I received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Recipes come from Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Iran, India and more. Also includes basic instructions on how to make your own yogurt- an easy and essential part of life in my opinion!As always with this company's cookbooks, this yogurt cookbook is also filled with pleasing photography of the meals.

    The intro with the history and trajectory of yogurt through the world was a good way to introduce this cookbook and Fletcher stays more informative than chatty throughout her header notes. The breakfast options are more like combinations of things to stir into your yogurt but the salads are pitch perfect. Vegetarians can rejoice, many of the recipes can either be converted into vegetarian or are already vegetarian. A note for the home cook is to seriously consider how the texture of the yogurt you have would translate into your chosen dish. (I am currently in Greece where the "Greek" yogurt varies considerably by brand so I at first made a very watery Alsatian pizza.) More photos of the finished dishes would have been welcome especially since some of dishes are from further flung or more obscure origins but the instructions are clear and so the end product is probably something tasty!

    3.5-3.75 StarsA gorgeously illustrated cookbook with roughly 65-70 recipes incorporating yogurt. Most recipes are fairly easy to follow but some recipes include ingredients that may be harder to find in more rural areas (or just an ingredient not often used by most readers). The history of yogurt, basic info about yogurt, and a few differences between yogurt types are in sections near the beginning of the book. The rest of this cookbook is the recipe part separated by meal type (breakfast, soups, desserts, etc). I am looking forward to the avacado soup recipe. Overall, a good book if you like yogurt.I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

    Nice small and informative book about all things yogurt (including a bit of history and the choosing tips), even the recipe for homemade yogurt! The book contains more than 60 recipes for breakfast dishes, salads and appetizers, soups, main dishes (both vegetable and meat ones) and even drinks - and here goes my personal yay shout for ayran, which I just love! And they sound quite delicious. I would love to have more pictures (to be sure of the steps) and the conversion system, as I am non U.S. reader.Having said that, I find the book really informative and I will use the recipes.

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.Full of imaginative and subtly flavored recipes, this collection offers varied ways to use yogurt. The desserts are simple yet elegant, both in taste and appearance. Main dish ideas and sides are also included, showing a Greek and Indian influence. Instructions on how to make yogurt at home and a little of the history of yogurt add to this book. Delicious!

    I thought this was great. It's one of those single-premise cookbooks that have the huge potential to be... short, repetitive, boring, and overall useless. This was no such thing; I'd probably be happy eating out of this book for a couple weeks. Great selection, great ideas, good food.

    Great pictures, sparked some new ideas, sensational for thinking about summer/hot weather recipes, love Janet Fletcher writing in every context. That being said not necessarily a book I'd own as I'm not fond of keeping single ingredient books.

    Mmm... yogurt. This is a great collection of recipes incorporating yogurt for every meal. Sometimes it's a garnish and sometimes it's the main part of the dish. There's also an explanation of yogurt making which doesn't sound all that complicated, but definitely more effort that buying ready made.

    From making basic yogurt, to greek-style, to yogurt cheese, plus many recipes for appetizers, drinks, entrees, side dishes, and desserts using yogurt. I can't wait to try so many of these recipes! (Provided by publisher)
