CHICAGO, IL - November 7, 2007 - Internationally-acclaimed health and wellness pioneer Nancy Lee Bentley will be in Chicago, November 14th- 20th to introduce her newest book, "Truly Cultured: Rejuvenating Taste, Health and Community with Naturally Fermented Foods."
Take it from the expert: Bacteria never looked so good.
Bentley shows all of us how to "Eat our way back to good health, sense, and enjoyment!" using the ancient practice of natural fermentation and culturing. The book explains how the bacteria we swear daily we're going to wipe out are actually the secret missing key to our physical and environmental health. Astonishingly, they are also responsible for creating our favorite foods, such as chocolate, cheese and coffee.
Truly Cultured is a delicious and nutritious feast of recipes, quips, quotes, quizzes, history, anecdotes, puns, myths, food science, facts and figures, secrets, insights, how-to tips, tidbits and unabashed, call-it-like-it-is power truths that help readers understand how important live, cultured, fermented foods are to our health and our communities. "I'm on a mission to wake up Americans from our nightmare of over-processed, impotent, chemically-laden foods that leave us overweight and undernourished," says Nancy Lee with characteristic enthusiasm.
Although many people will pick up Truly Cultured just for its scrumptious recipes, the book is much more. Bentley hopes it will change the way we think about food, life and how this impacts the world. Her "Hello, hasn't anyone else seen what's going on?" approach will have you laughing one minute, then groaning and crying the next.
She digests and distills the full scope of the subject down to the troubling mysteries of the inner and outer enigmas of our time, ranging from ADHD, GERD, and other obscure alphabet soup conditions, to obesity, antibiotic and pesticide resistance, and just plain global "out of whackism." Then she provides obvious logical conclusions and simple ecological solutions for extracting ourselves from our planetary mess.
Wholistic Health Expert Nancy Lee Bentley is well-known for connecting the burgeoning healthy and gourmet organic foods industry with the environmental movement and the spiritual revolution. She tirelessly promotes traditionally cultured foods and holistic lifestyles to support optimum nutrition and sustainable communities. Truly Cultured is destined to become the bread and butter (cultured, of course) standard for a new paradigm palate.
