What's the Deal with Ginger?
Ginger is a fibrous root that adds a warm, spicy flavor to dishes. It's also often used as a remedy for a cold or an upset stomach. (If you were ever given ginger ale for an upset stomach as a kid, that's why.) You'll find ginger in many different forms:fresh, ground, caramelized, or even pickled. Look out for more recipes in this book, such as Thai Chicken Sauté that call for this wonderful ingredient.
