"I am thoroughly impressed by Jan Wassenberg's Nature's Bounty. His clear passion for food and health combined with a drive for evidence-based, scientific support of his culinary concoctions have gifted us with the creation of a unique manual that would serve as a true asset for any inquisitive aspiring-chef."

Jan Wassenberg is partly fueled by chocolate. 14 years ago at the age of 18, he realized that moving to university would require another food source. His mother wrote a starter cookbook, leading to many sociable gatherings in the student dorm kitchen. A tasty demo convinced the group to invest in an ice cream maker. Happy years of plentiful frozen desserts, baking, Frisbee, and dancing ensued. After moving out, finishing an algorithm engineering PhD and one too many visits to the dentist, he shifted focus to healthier desserts. A keen interest in nutrition, stoked by hundreds of research articles, led to major changes. Motivated by a desire for continual improvement, Jan tested and tweaked each recipe at weekly cooking get-togethers. He is eager to share the delightful results and hopes this book adequately communicates the why and how.
Jan is joined in his passion for cooking by his wife Jaya. With a combined 30 years of kitchen experience, they bring together the best of East and West.
