(KCBS) – KCBS Food and Wine Editor Narsai David calls “The Food Substitutions Bible” by David Joachim the most unusual book. It includes 5500 substitutions for ingredients, equipment, and techniques in the kitchen. For example, if you run out of baking powder, there’s a simple way to combine cream of tartar and baking soda that creates a good substitute. Joachim also includes a section on dried beans from azuki to white kidneys and the different types of chili peppers.
