This comprehensive practical guide provides information on food practices for 15 cultures. Each chapter focuses on a particular culture, including such factors as diabetes risk factors; traditional foods, dishes and meal plans; special holiday foods; traditional health beliefs; current food practices, and more. Culturally appropriate counseling recommendations are also discussed. A list of common foods, including nutrient evaluations, is included for each culture. A CD-ROM including culturally-specific client education handouts round out the book.
The Cultural Food Practices received an EXCEL Award in 2010, receiving the Bronze Award in the Technical Book category. Judges looked for "Best writing, content, graphic design, photographs and overall packaging of a professional/technical book or textbook."
