Power of the pulse celebrated in new cook book

27 May 2016

People around the world are being encouraged by the UN to get passionate about the power of the pulse…that’s pulse as in peas, beans and lentils.

A number of international top chefs have got together with the help of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization to produce a cook book featuring what the FAO is calling, “one of the world’s most versatile super foods.”

The book’s title is Pulses, nutritious seeds for a sustainable future. It’s being launched to coincide with the International Year of Pulses.

Sandra Ferrari has been talking to Sile Obroin, one of the FAO’s lead coordinators for the publication.
