Americans have fallen in love with yogurt, thanks to its creamy texture, tangy flavor, and health-promoting probiotic cultures. In Yogurt, a fresh and modern full-color cookbook, author Janet Fletcher demonstrates the versatility of this dairy superstar in more than fifty recipes for appetizers, salads, soups, beverages, and desserts. From roasted tomato bruschetta with yogurt cheese to meatballs in a warm yogurt sauce to a golden yogurt cake, these recipes showcase yogurt in dishes both rustic and sophisticated. Drawing inspiration from the culinary traditions of Greece, Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Iran, India, and beyond, this useful handbook includes a guide to purchasing yogurt (all of the recipes work with quality store-bought brands), advice on choosing a yogurt maker, and easy methods for making yogurt, Greek yogurt, and yogurt cheese at home.


“Janet Fletcher has written the book we yogurt-lovers have long been waiting for. Her recipes remind me of dishes I tasted in numerous Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern home kitchens where yogurt is an essential ingredient and where the best home cooks understand just how to use it. A beautiful book, authoritative and inspiring.”
–Paula Wolfert, author of The Food of Morocco
“Yogurt is so much more than a breakfast or snack. Janet seamlessly weaves it into a collection of beautiful, vibrant and healthful recipes that are sure to be a frequent reference for weeknight meals and parties with friends.”
–Sara Forte, author of The Sprouted Kitchen
