Yoghurt

A Global History

Yoghurt: A Global History is a fascinating look at the rich history of yoghurt, from its earliest awakenings in Neolithic times to the modern-day culinary phenomenon it has become. The book delves into its nutritious properties, analyzes worldwide consumption, and explores the new developments in yoghurts, including non-dairy varieties, on-the-go options, and its impact in China, Europe, and North America. Highlighting scientific studies and offering practical guidance, June Hersh helps us better understand the plethora of yoghurt products available. She also provides step by step instructions on how to make foolproof homemade yoghurt, as well as mouthwatering international recipes.
