The Yogurt Bible
Paperback, 317 pages
For those seeking to add a bit of culture to their lives

In the Starters section, I tried out the Creamy Red Pepper Spread. Simple and delicious, this uses Yogurt Cheese as the base for a creamy and healthy dip/spread. This was a huge hit with my husband.
Making your own yogurt means that you have control over the quality - everything from the type of milk, to fat content, and, of course, additives. Have you ever read the packages of flavoured yogurts in the stores? Scary. Making your own is healthy, easy, and delicious.
