Only a fine creative artist could have written it…I can only say that I envy anyone who has not read it, and that it will live as the most enchanting ornament of all the Freudian biographical literature. — Nick Malgieri, author of How to Bake and Nick Malgieri's Perfect PastryAndrea and Cara have complied a rich collection of globally-inspired, nut-centric recipes and useful information that will add unexpected texture, flavor, and flair to any kitchen.
