TORRANCE, CA – June 29, 2018 – Dusty jars of Cumin, Coriander, Cayenne and other types of condiments are set to return to culinary action after the launch of the new book, Seasoning Substitutions: Swaps and Stand-ins for Sweet or Savory Condiments and Flavorings.
A recent survey conducted by Kenwood suggests that the value of unused spices in British cupboards is worth a whopping £240 million. The problem is that spices are often used for specific one-off recipes and then left to languish in cupboards for months and even years. Luckily most spices can still be used even after their best by use dates as long as they retain their color or aroma.
Seasoning Substitutions is the new A-Z handbook touted as a veritable treasure trove destined to save the busy cook both time and money. The book is packed with suggestions and recipes that will help users find alternatives and facsimiles for condiments from around the world. However, it’s not just about improvising condiments. This handy little guide will also help cooks:
- Understand the differences between various kinds of vinegar and oils
- Create replicas of commercial products
- Convert dozens of receipes into gluten-free, lactose-free or vegan versions
Seasoning Substitutions was written by Jean B. MacLeod–author of The Waste-Wise Kitchen Companion, The Waste Wise Gardner, and The Kitchen Paraphernalia Handbook. The enthusiastic culinarian hates waste and is a long time collector of practical tips. When asked about the motivation for her latest book, she said: “I was inspired as always by my interest in preventing food waste.”
Seasoning Substitutions is a useful resource for the creative maverick, those who dread the thought of discarding the single-used condiments and those who want to save time and money. The book is available for purchases on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other independent booksellers. For further information or to purchase a copy of the book, visit: https://jeanbmacleod.com.
